I have toenail fungus. I was cutting my toenails yesterday

Customer Question

Hello. I have toenail fungus. I was cutting my toenails yesterday and accidently cut a little too far in the nail bed (this is the toe with the nail fungus). It is a very small puncture with very little bleeding. I put some hydrogen peroxide on it. Do I need to be concerned about the toenail fungus causing some type of complication to the nic on the toe?
