An in-growing toenail really needs to be dealt with by a chiropodist. I know that alot of in-grown toenails have to be removed. Make an appointment with your doctor, they may be able to give you something to help you out. Hi there, When I had a ingrown toenail, I needed surgery to remove the nail. But prior to this I did cutt the corners of the affected nail off, so the corners didn't stick in my toe and imbed itself any more. You could try this but it might do more harm than good. Alternatively see a chropodist who will look at your nail for you and fix it if necessary or advise you on whether you need surgery or not. Take care. ~T

The best option to ease ingrown toenail pain is to go to a podiatrist and have them remove the ingrown toenail. Although you will be in more pain at first, this is a long lasting solution to completely rid of the pain you are experiencing. In the event that you ar unable or uninterested in going to see a doctor, there are some at home remedies. One of the more popular at home remedies is to soak the toe in an Epson salt mix for about thirty minutes. After the skin softens, gently full back the skin surrounding the ingrown toenail. Be sure to use an antibiotic ointment on it, and keep the area clean and covered for a few days. If you still experience pain, ice and ibuprofen will help ease the sensation.

not if you have an ingrown toenail... then it is perfectly normal

it depends on how strong your toenail is and how weak your hamster is :)

take a needle go right into the the part of the toenail by the skin, lift the toenail up with the needle and take the nail clippers and cut it back. or in the front of your toenail right in the middle, cut a v shaped figure. the point of the v should be facing up the toenail. this way the toenail will grow toward each other and will prevent ingrown toenails to happen.
