    Ingrown toenails are a common condition in which the corner or side of a toenail grows into the soft flesh.

    Soak the foot in warm water 3 to 4 times a day if possible. After soaking, keep the toe dry, Gently massage over the inflamed skin, Place a small piece of cotton or dental floss under the nail. Wet the cotton with water or antiseptic.

    In severe cases, more intensive treatments are needed. Surgery involves simply cutting away the sharp portion of ingrown nail, removing the nail bed, or removing a wedge of the affected tissue. Orthonyxia, a newer surgical technique that implants a small metal brace into the top of the nail, may be as effective as traditional surgical techniques for preventing ingrown toenails from recurring.Nonsurgical methods can also treat ingrown toenails. One technique uses chemicals to remove the skin. Both sodium hydroxide and phenol may be used, but research shows that sodium hydroxide produces a better outcome and faster recovery than phenol. Other nonsurgical methods include using cauterization (heating), or lasers, to remove the skin.
