9 Home Remedies for Ingrown Toenails

Like many people, I am hard on my toes. I spend a great deal of time on my feet, and not always in the most comfortable of shoes. At the end of the day, the result is often painfully swollen toes, which take extra time and care to treat.

What doctors call Onychocryptosis, we know better as an ingrown toenail. Ingrown toenails are a common condition in which the corner or side of a toenail grows into and cuts the surrounding flesh. This results in pain, redness, swelling, and sometimes infection. Left untreated, ingrown toenails discharge a yellowish pus fluid and extra tissue will grow on the affected toe, covering part of the nail and furthering the risk of infection. Ultimately, an ingrown toenail, though it may seem minor at first, can lead to loss of a limb. Check out the article below to see 9 home remedies to help with your ingrown toenail.
