I had one dealt with while I was in Malaysia. At the time there were a few options around, all involving killing parts of the nail bed to ensure a smaller nail grows back. In my case they gave me local (which actually hurt quite a bit), then they cut through the nail and the 'meat' below it basically taking a triangular cross section of meat out of the toe. Then they sewed the meat back together. Nail grows back not as wide as before. Took a while to walk properly again, but worked. There was some option around where they used acid to kill the nail bed, and I remember wishing they could have done that at the time (but they didn't offer it).

Can't imagine them using general when local would do.
