Ingrown Toenails: How to Heal the Hurt

Ingrown toenails cause a lot of pain. There are home remedies that can be tried but if the problem recurs or becomes infected, you should see a podiatrist. People with diabetes should not try a home remedy, but should see a podiatrist for treatment as soon as they notice they have an ingrown toenail.

Ingrown Toenails: How to Heal the Hurt

If you do not have diabetes, or the ingrown toenail is not infected, here are a few things you can try to alleviate the pain.

• Soak your foot in warm water twice a day for 15 minutes each soak time.

• After soaking, dry your foot thoroughly and keep it dry.

• This is a good time to check for signs of infection such as redness or swelling.

• Using the blunt end of fingernail clippers or a cotton swab, gently lift the toenail away from the skin.

• Wear a Band-aid when wearing shoes to protect ingrown toenails from friction.

• Wear sandals if possible. At least wear wide-toed shoes that will put minimal pressure on the painful toenail.

• Take an over-the-counter pain killer such as ibuprofen or aspirin.

• If you see any sign of infection, see your podiatrist.
