Ingrown toenail

Just as I was tucking Callum into bed tonight, he complained of his toe hurting him. I looked a bit closer and it looks like he's got an ingrown toenail. Nothing too bad and it doesn't yet seem to be infected (which is good news for us!) but it was inflamed and sore to the touch. :(

So, I had him soak it for 20 minutes in warm water with Epsom salts, which he thought was fascinating. After the soak I put some neosporin on it with a bandaid. I'll check it again in the morning in case we need to soak it again. The last thing we need is an infection to deal with. :(
