I have an ingrown nail, any home remedies?!

Question: I have an ingrown nail, any home remedies.?
My left foot's big toe has an ingrown nail and the skin is reddish purple and swollen. Are there any home remedies where I won't have to go to the doctor or podiatrist to get it fixed.?Health Question & Answer

Try soaking your toe in very warm water with table salt. Some might suggest Epsom salt, but I find regular table salt works best.

Soak it for about 15-20 minutes, let dry and see if you can squeeze any of the bad stuff out of the area.

Depending on how bad it is, you may have to repeat this several times. Be sure that after you squeeze the area, apply anti-biotic cream afterward.

Good luck!Health Question & Answer

You have an infection that is swollen with puss. Soak it in Hot water and drain the puss out with a needle.Health Question & Answer
