That's basically what my dad does for a living. He's a pediatrist. lol.
The whole "soaking" thing is like stupid. When I got "surgery" on my toe he just wrapped it up and then I just took it off like 2 days later.
Although yours was worse than mine. And my dad doesn't sound gay like your doctor lol.
It's weird cuz when i went home i felt this like warm thing with my finger and I was like WTF? but then i realized it was my toe totally numb.
