Hi I just recently went to visit some friends and the first day I was there I took my shoes off inside cuz my feet were hot. I immediately stubbed my toe and broke it. Then today my big toe on the same foot was hurting. I do not really have a toenail there but soft tissue. It wa rubbing on my shoe. I was carefully clipping the soft tissue away when bang! I clipped too deep andtore off the end of my toe. It is a small wound but hurts to walk on it.

Keep an eye on those boo-boo's now. Make sure they are being well cared for and if they are not healing in a way you feel they should, make sure your doctor is in the loop on treatment.
I know that my toe nail surgery healed fine after I was diagnosed with diabetes, but I kept on my podiatrist to watch it too.
