In-grown toe nail
How can one best aneathetise one's toe for the purpose of cutting the corner of an ingrown toenail. The toe' corner is very painful. (Could one obtain the stuff that dentists use?)
Thanx.

Snoopy, the safest would be to use ice to numb the pain. The “stuff that dentist use” is dangerous and may cause your toe to fall off if you don’t know what you’re doing. Good luck.
