Bite the bullet. Clip down both sides as far as you can. Cut the top flat. Try not to wear shoes that cramp your toes. I have them all the time because I tend to not clip them when I should. You may need to use a fingernail filer to prop up the toenail to clip it down enough. It may bleed or hurt a little, but this will pass. Soak the foot before trimming. This will soften the toenail.

You aren't supposed to clip the sides of toe nails. Ask any doctor.

Get nail clippers and dig into the ingrown part. When you reach the root, cut it

Google it. My husband used to get them until I told him the preventative measure. Cut your nails straight across and not too shot. That's why they become ingrown. Because you cut where you aren't supposed to. After that he never got another one. Good luck.

Go to the doctor. I know shots hurt, but their for your own health, lime I have a disease that if I don't get a shot annually I get really sick. Plus, your probs don't have to get one.
