One way to skin a nail
I don’t know of even one way to skin a cat, but Dr Michael Rice from Beaudesert, Qld, sends in before-and-after photos of how to skin an ingrown toenail.

After a ring block and tourniquet, Dr Rice marks out a wide area for skin incision and resects the whole side, exposing the large original nail spur. Alginate dressings allow the skin to heal, and by that time the spur has pushed to the end of the toe and ended its life as nail clippings.
