Is the Walk-In Clinic good enough for this?

Yesterday when I was applying sunblock to my dd (10 years old) I noticed her little toe was red but didn't really think anything of it. Today I paid a little more attention when I was putting on sunblock and it's really red, the nail is kind of yellow and she said it hurt a little bit. She's at summer camp until 4:20, the doctor office here closes at 5pm and the walk in is open until 6:30. I could make an appointment with her doctor for tomorrow but that would mean missing some of summer camp and that would be like the end of the world lol. Do you think she needs to see her regular doctor or is the walk in clinic enough for something like this?

better to miss part of summer camp then be missing a toe, take her immediately to the doctor, dont wait another day or she could very well end up losing the toe, i dont know about anyone else, but i am kinda attached to mine!

Hm well I'm not that worried. I think I'm going to bring her to the walk in after camp today.

A walk in is fine.

Did she get it looked at? Is she okay?

Yep we went and she has an infection on/in her toe. She's on antibiotics for 10 days but she's fine and at summer camp today.

I was going to say walk-in as well. But I'm a little late to the game!
