    Holding back on starting MMA

    I have a fungal toenail, it was discoloured and partly detached so I cut it all off and bought some topical stuff. Looks better but still not ok.

    I don't want to join because I know this will gross everyone out and don't want to risk passing it on, so what do I do? Take orals and wait a year or so? I REALLY want to join.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you. (Sorry for unattractive topic).

    Forget about your toe grossing everyone out. There is a possibility of it getting injured or infected and that will only make matters worse for you.
    There are no boxing gyms near my area, sounds weird I know. That would be a good shout though, thanks for the help man.

    I don't think people will care too much brah. With all the kicking, sprawling and checks, you're bound to have some rough and discolored feet. I wouldn't even sweat it.

    I've heard people know why you're taping it up and then still worry about infection/judge?

    And I KNOW I sound like a little bish, but I just hate being 'that guy'

    Is it really contagious? I highly doubt your toenail infection is going to take a year to heal though. If a toe is stopping you from training I have sum bad newz brah.
    Sounds like you are just making excuses to start.

    If a funky-looking toe is enough to keep you out for a whole year, you may not be cut out for combat sports.

    And you'll be punching dudes in the head and torquing limbs, so lol at fretting over making one of their toes look a little groce







    Anyway...
    Did you cut the entire nail off? If not, topical chit is usually a waste of money. If you're serious about fixing it, go to the doc & have him put you under & pull it off with pliers. Grows back fine

    Just tape it up or if you're really freaked out about it, explain it to the instructor and see if you can wear some cheap wrestling shoes. It shouldn't keep you Out for a year, it's a toenail

    Not all of it, left a bit that looked ok. Yeah, I've heard, think I'll book an appointment.

    So glad with all the responses, was on some other forums and they were all whining about how inconsiderate it is to expose everyone to it. Thanks brahs, I'll enrol this weekend, wish me luck.

    fungal toenail brah checking in. Started about 6 years ago, I thought it was a little dirty and the dirt would go away after a while, didnt know what it was. last couple of years, got really bad (in terms of appearance) recently went to the doc got given a lacquer to apply to the area, hopefully will be gone in a few months. Would rather it wasnt there but it aint gon keep me from training. In the past the toe nail came off completely, I just taped it up until it started to regrow.

    If youre in England feel free to pop in to my dojo.

    You're probably going to lose a toenail or two as you go on anyway; tape that **** up and roll on. No offense but the people saying that you might be a bit fragile for a combat sport have a point.

    If you refer to a fighter who you've never met in real life as "my boy" as though their performance somehow reflects well on you for simply being a fan, you're a lame ass.
