Every time we go to some place he says: “You should talk because
I don’t speak English very well.” But you speak English very well. – Thanks!
– Very good English. But when I got here,
I didn’t speak it at all. – How long was it?
– Four years ago. You should speak with my wife,
because she is learning English. – Really?
– Yes. – It is not easy.
– No, it’s not. And the problem is that we’re speaking
in Spanish at home every day. But now I’m trying to
be stronger and say: – “No, speak in English.”
– Yeah. – But you speak fluently.
– Thanks! I was talking you in Spanish
and your answers were in English… Yes, because sometimes
people talk in Spanish but they don’t speak Spanish. Right. So people tell me that I’m very lucky because I always find
someone who speaks Spanish. – How lucky!
– Yes. It’s easier. Okay, I’m going to clean up your toe. Okay. When you feel the pinch, do not move your foot,
just place it down here. It’s just the two sides and that’s it. Do you want to lie back
on the chair a little? No, I want to see. Yeah! The dentist, that’s okay. Although, now I’m a bit afraid of blood I don’t know…
I panic a bit with all that. Don’t worry, you’ll be find. Here we go. One, two, three. Very good. That’s it. You’re doing fine. Poor little toe. Three months like this? You mean with the infection or… – With the infection.
– Like a month and a half. Did you turn on the camera? Yes, I did! Today, the video is in Spanish. Oh! – Not too bad.
– No. Okay, one more side, one more side. Spanglish. Spanglish is better. This side is more painful. Yes, that’s it, hold a bit.
Breathe. Very good. You’re doing great. Is it too painful still
or is getting better? Getting better. Okay. The swollen finger. Swollen, yes. No, I’m going to put some gauze here while I prepare everything. Let’s see if your toe is getting
the anesthesia and then we start. But I can see all the fluid wanting to
get out of the tissue. How do you say hypergranulation tissue
in Spanish? Is like, granulated skin? Granulation tissue. That’s it, that’s what’s rising
on the surface. Because there is a wound
and the body is trying to heal it. But because it can’t heal it,
the tissue is rising above the surface and all the infection is below it. Yes, because I already
took antibiotics twice. And it didn’t work. – It improve a bit but it didn’t heal.
– Yeah. It will heal when the toenail is out. Last week it was okay… …but this week is bad again. Okay. No. You pass it, very well. And my husband lost the whole nail so… – Yes, that’s…
– …I was waiting the same. That’s something I don’t understand. Sometimes you can lost your nail but other times, your toe holds the nail and the nail stays there. But that’s disadvantageous. So the infection gets in
but the nails doesn’t fall. So it is like an abscess. And also, I cut it a bit because
the nail wasn’t getting out. Yes, yes. So I cut it and it started to… …look more like this. Is that normal? No, usually it is different, but from
now on, you will have a new nail. When this happens it is very interesting
because the nail doesn’t fall. That is worse. Because, usually,
the nails changes its color and it falls by its own. But when it stays in the toe, it causes much problems. Because the infection doesn’t go away. It cuts off the circulation
and nothing works. My husband plays soccer and he lost his nail playing. I mean, he had his toenail long
and because of the pressure the nail started to bend but he didn’t had an infection
and the nail fell. It happened because the nail was
separated from the skin. It was separated from the toe basis. When that happens between
the cuticle and this part over here, it is worse. Because the skin is holding
down the nail so it doesn’t fall. I’m going to put the tourniquet so we don’t have any blood or anything. I’m very curious to see… …how infected it is
or how much pus it has. I don’t feel my toe. – What?
– My toe, I don’t feel it. It is okay. Do you want to feel it? No, no! It is better not to feel it. So, what do you want to
do here in Canada? Regarding work. Right now I’m working in… …Square War. But in the future… I want to study something. Dental hygiene or dental assistant…
I don’t know.. That’s okay. And podiatrist? Yeah! Of course. Okay let me see this a bit.
Do you feel something here? No. – Here?
– No. – Are you recording?
– Here? – Nothing here?
– No. Look, it is separated here. The cuticle is separated. And that’s why the infection gets in… …easily. I don’t want it hurts me tomorrow,
what should I do? You can apply cardenol. A bit of cardenol,
but here we will lift it, look. It is opened and it will be a hole. Oh my God! Look at this. Did you see? Oh my God! This tissue is not normal. It is growing because
the body is trying to heal the wound. – Should it be like this?
– Yes. This skin is not good. Because it is the deposit of all
the infection and the damaged tissue. – Did you feel something?
– No. – The infection is there.
– Yes. But it is most because of
the skin under the nail. You can’t see it but inside here… …it is swollen. Did you see that? That’s not normal. Because it is swollen,
and there is inflammation. I’m just checking
that there is not more left. Can I come tomorrow
to get anesthesia. So it doesn’t hurt. No, no, you will have
the greater pain today. Today? And tomorrow but after that
you will be fine on Sunday. It is very swollen. Swollen is like bloated? Swollen, yeah. – Swollen?
– Yes, swollen, very good. Now I’m going to… I’m going to spray this salt water. Salt water. And now… …we will have to wait around eight to
twelve months for the new toenail grow. Twelve months? Yes, but you’re young. That will probably be faster. You have to apply ointment like this… …after the shower, okay? Today, I’m going to put some gauze. In case of… …there’s blood. But tonight you have to change it
for a band aid. If you don’t change the gauze tonight, it will stick to the skin. So it is very important
you change it tonight, you remove everything
including the ointment and then you band aid again. – The ointment again with…
– Yes. Exactly. Look at this. Do you see the skin below? It was trying to heal the wound. Usually, this should no be there. Take a picture. Okay.


  1. I love that you can also communicate in Spanish! Piel (skin), not carne (that’s meat, like what you eat) 😂

  2. I did not know it could block the infection from healing because it didn’t fall off. The shot showing how large the gap was is dramatic. Great job on your Spanish! You have really improved.

  3. I love that you did this one in Spanish! I don't speak a word of it, but I love listening to different languages in conversation. 😊

  4. Great Job on your Spanish!!
    Muy Bueno!! Kudos to her on the shots too!!! She did not move her foot at all!!
    Ella nunca retrocede!!!!
    She did respond a little but never flinched!!
    Muy Buena mi Amiga!!! Vas Chica!

  5. Very impressed by your language skills, I’ve heard English, French and now Spanish. This clearly makes the patient feel at ease when you explain things in their native tongue. Well done!

  6. Muy bien muchacho, te expresas muy bien; salvo algunos errores propios de ls gramatica en Espanol, la cual, dicho sea de paso, es una de las gramaticas mas extensas y complicadas de aprender de cualesquier idioma, lo hablas basicamente bien y te puedes comunicar efectivamente. Lo bueno es que el idioma es totalmente fonetico y si tienes buen oido para la musica lo vas aprender con tan solo escucharlo. Te felicito, enhorabuena Toe Bro. I wish all my Spanish students would've learned to speak as good as you do. Take care, and Blessings.

  7. It’s all good video, but the actual beginning of the toenail removal begins at 6:10. Thank goodness for 10 second rapid advancement

  8. Dear toe bro. Due to your wonderful videos I finally got brave enough to have my ingrown toe nails removed. This was Friday. Each day it hurt worse. The top and sides of toe turned white while the sides where toenails were removed were angry red and seeping. The base of toe was red and spreading downward. What caused this please?

  9. She seemed pretty scared of the whole thing. Luckily you were able to calm her down and tell her otherwise. I'm glad she isn't during anymore. I don't speak Spanish but I do speak Portuguese (Brasil). I surpised myself with understanding 95% of the video without using captions.

  10. estaria genial que subieras mas videos hablando en españo o suptitulados, para los que no sabemos mucho ingles, en general excelente contenido.

  11. Me encanta que tu español tiene el acento de tu esposa! And it's also nice to see that your usual warmth is also conveyed in Spanish <3

  12. ¡Desearía poder hablar español! ¡Gran trabajo! ¡Deberías haber olido la uña del pie y explicar cómo olía! 🤣😂💀

  13. Just how hard did she hit it to jam her nail that far into her toe!? That's at least a 10 curse word string right there.

  14. I don’t know about y’all but when he cuts to the toe with iodine all over it I always think WHAT HAS HE DONE!! 😧 Lol looks like blood Every time 😖

  15. Ahhh me encanta que haya hecho el video en español! I usually have to concentrate all my neurons to the fullest to understand what they are talking about jajaja 🥺

  16. I always hold my breath whenever I'm watching your vids, may looks gross but satisfying. Can't stop watching!!! Keep it up Toe Bro 🤭😁

  17. First time I dislike one of your videos. The spanish is very annoying to me. I hate subtitles and just want to be able to listen to the talking and the jokes being made 🙁

  18. I was all A-okay, until ToeBro opened that cuticle area and saw that bloody fresh flesh. I got shivers. We don't usually see a swollen, deep cuticle area. 😷 Daaaaang…

  19. Holey moley. Was that was a deeper toenail under the cuticle than most? It sure seemed like it. I was saying OMG right along with the patient. Very interesting video, Jonathan! Thanks for sharing it with us.
