The Toe Bro: Trophy (Season 1) | A&E


JONATHAN: Let’s take a look
at this one over here, OK? Are they pretty
painful right now? Yeah.
JONATHAN: They are pretty sore. OK. [music playing] That’s a lot of tissue that’s
growing over that toenail. Wow. Let’s take a look
at this other one. So let me see how
this one is doing. Oh my gosh. This one’s even bigger. How have you been walking
around with these? ADAM: Yeah, I know. JONATHAN: You’re
a really tough guy to be dealing with all this. Adam’s toes look really painful. That nail looks like it’s
digging right into the skin. So these are severe
ingrown toenails. This is something that can
cause the toe to become severely, severely deformed. It really hurts to see
a young boy deal with so much discomfort and pain. So really, there’s only one main
option that we have for this, and that’s permanently
removing the ingrown toenails. We don’t have to
remove the whole nail. We can just remove the sides. OK? OK. [music playing] JONATHAN: You’re
going to have a candy. Get your sugar rush on. That’s good. Everyone has their own way
with dealing with pain. And for Adam, if that’s knocking
back some candy before we get started, I’m all for it. ADAM: The good thing is
it’s only one side, right? We’ve got to do both sides. ADAM: OK. Never mind. I retract my statement. JONATHAN: Last
pinch for the day. Very good. You made it. Yay. JONATHAN: You still
got a smile, too. So that’s good. You want to watch? ADAM: Yeah. JONATHAN: You do? ADAM: I like to watch
this type of stuff. [music playing] JONATHAN: You really
want to see, huh? I feel a lot of
people like to watch their ingrown toenail
procedure, because they know this nail has been
bugging them and really affecting their life. This nail is extremely wide. It goes straight
down in the corner. And they get to finally see
that ingrown be ripped out. OK, so this is the fun part. Are you excited for this? Yes. JONATHAN: I think you are. You’re ready to
get this guy out. [music playing] All that. That’s how much nail was
hiding underneath, OK? Quite a bit. I’m going to do the same
thing on this other side. So again, grip on
tight, and we’re going to do a little pull to
see how much nail is coming out. Still a lot of nail. Too far into the skin. There’s just so much
nail stuck in the skin, and so much tissue that’s
grown over these toenails. So what I’m also going to do is
remove some of that dead skin on this side, OK? Almost think of
it like a callous. Adam, you haven’t
even looked away yet. I don’t want to.
JONATHAN: You don’t want to? You want to keep watching?
ADAM: Yeah. JONATHAN: Well, you
know the good thing, we got one more toe to do. We’re going to do
a couple rounds of this acid to really stop
this nail from coming back. This is really the
important part. I call this the shish kebab toe. Is it making you hungry? ADAM: Yeah. [laughs] JONATHAN: OK, one toe is done. Now, one more, OK? So this is the big, bad boy. Oh my gosh. You have something growing
right through that toe. I’ve never seen this before. That’s unbelievable. This is a new one for me. I’ve seen hundreds
of ingrown toenails. I’ve never seen an
ingrown toenail so bad that the nail is actually
poking through the skin on the other side. Adam, you’ve been really
good through all of this. You’re a tough guy. I know. JONATHAN: All this bad stuff
has to come off, because if we don’t free up the skin– We can get rid of
the ingrown nail. But again, the skin can
grow right over on top. The skin was all
the way up here. This was completely hidden. And we had this
little spike up here that was growing on through. OK, so we’re going to trim
this bad part of the nail. Ready? Yeah. JONATHAN: So your nail is going
to be a little bit narrower. But the most important
thing is that it’s not going to come back. [music playing] So again, grip on
tight, and we’re going to do a little pull to
see how much nail is coming out. Look how much was hiding
underneath that skin. Yeah. JONATHAN: All that. One last side. There. [music playing] That’s a huge piece of
nail, unbelievably big. OK. It looks a little scary when
you see those holes on the side. But everything’s
going to close up. Now that there’s no more
inflammation and infection, everything just shrinks back in. So much, much, much better. Good, because I don’t want
my toes looking like that. JONATHAN: No, we don’t want
your toes looking like that. But there we go. We’re all finished. No more ingrown toenails, OK? So you said you really want
to take these ones home, huh? Yes. JONATHAN: Those are all yours. It’s not weird for someone to
want their ingrown toenails. It’s almost like
a trophy for them to remember what they overcame. There you go, OK?
