bad pain since using curanail

Hello everyone,
I have been using Curanail for over a month now because I have an infection in two toe nails. My doctor prescribed this for me. After a few weeks, I have been experiencing pain on one of my toe nails, the biggest one. I feel this when I move my toe up and down, go on tip of my toes while standing up or even when I do nothing. I feel it on and underneath the nail and even through my toe. I also feel a bit of a burning sensation under my nail. Despite of these problems my toe nail does look a bit better. My Doctor said to me that the infection is mild, it's not noticeable unless if you look very closely. I read the instructions and I remember that one rare side affect that the nail might come off.. I'm just wondering if anyone is experiencing the same problem as me because so far I can't find any one with my problem. I can't ask my doctor because I'm currently on a long holiday. If you have any ideas, I would really appreciate any help because I'm getting worried. I need to use this treatment because I have the infection but I don't want to use it if it will make it worse...
Thank you :)

When confronted with pain in the great toe one should go a liile further, especially since the infection is minimal. 'Gout' is a condition with deposits of uric acid crystals on the joints, especially the great toe. Do get your serum uric acid levels done.

'Little further"- excuse the typographic error.

I don't have symptoms of gout such as on the joint I feel nothing there or other symptoms that I have read. Just sometimes I get what I explained in my post.

Hello,
It is important to get paronychia, bacterial infection of the nailbed and gout (if pain is inside the toe) to be ruled out.

Paronychia results from a breakdown of the protective barrier between the nail and the nail fold.

Treatment includes warm water soaks of the affected finger 3-4 times per day, oral antibiotics, topical antifungals and surgical intervention in more severe cases. My sincere advice would be to consult a dermatologist.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
