Home Remedies for Ingrown Toenail?

Answer

To stop ingrown toenails soak the affected foot in warm water for 20 minutes, three times a day. It is recommended to place a small piece of cotton underneath the ingrown toenail to help stop irritation of the toe. Cut the toenail straight across as it grows out. To prevent infection, wash and dry your foot completely before trimming, and use clean nail clippers.
