How do you ease an in-growing toenail?

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
