Emily, who is seven years old, waits in emergency with a painful big toe. She blames her little brother for knocking a heavyframed photo onto her foot while they were playing in her bedroom. Dr Reddy Ilavala scrutinises her big toe and drastic looking toenail. Mum helps to give her daughter a painkiller to inhale, as Dr Reddy has decided to drill a tiny hole in the nail to drain the blood, and relieve the pressure. Called trephining, this technique is definitely the one to start the toe healing
