I think I got mine at Traget. By comparison it doesn't sting as bad as Mercuricom (sp?) that my parents used back in the 70's. There was ALOT of wailing and gnashing of teeth with that stuff.

It doesn't have to be fun to be fun, right?

It can sting quite a bit, but it is short-lived and then you're back working out!

With an area as big as a toenail, I'd start conservatively...like one drop...

One drop? Earlier you said several coats! Good thing it's just toenail stuff and not medicine...

A coat is one drop, usually, depending on the size of the area (which is typically "torn blister/callus" size for me). A little goes a long way.

Make sure to wipe the brush on the rim to get any excess off...

Default another toenail issue

I started working out in a new pair of shoes and during the third of 50 box jumps, i felt my toe jam into the front of the shoe. I thought I had an ingrown nail, but it turned out, after some painful self examination in the bathroom, that my skin actually pulled away from the side of the nail. It's been 6 weeks, and it still kills.
