What's the best way to get a severe ingrown toenail(s) out at home?

it's not that bad but then again it is. I can touch it a little bit before it starts to hurt. and the thing is I would go in and see a doctor and have an operation on it but I don't have the money. And I don't want to wait any longer for it to get worse or infected. 1 of my 3 ingrowns are infected but the other 2 are not so I want to take them out like in a day or two.. so I was wondering what's the best way to get an ingrown out without too much pain? And how should I get the ingrown out itself? like should I pull it out with nail clippers or what?

I used to have a recurring problem with ingrown toenails when I was younger. I never had to go to the doctor, but I recall it being pretty bad with pus and everything (sorry, gross I know) however I found out that I kept getting them because I cut my toenails too deep, and in a U shape. The moment I stopped cutting too much off my toenails and cutting them straighter across, I stopped having that problem. Granted you would have to wait for them to grow longer though.

you should just go to the doctors the most painful part is the injection. the procedure is really quick and you have to take care of it after

Go to a witch doctor. They can give you stuff that you just put on your toenails throughout the day and it will be cured in about a week. It's cheaper, easier, and painless.

Ok I don't care if you don't have the money use insurance or something, GO TO A DOCTOR!!! But in the mean time, to prevent infection I would rap it with medical cloth every day, and before putting it on put disinfectant pad on it, keep it clean.
