If you have ever had trouble with an ingrown toenail then you know how much of a pain they can be. But if you are not one to go for medical help then we may have the solution for you.
There is now a device available on the market that claims to ‘fix’ your toenail problems in just a few simple steps, that is if you are not the squeamish type.
The Japanese Makixume Robo ingrown Toenail Fixer features two prongs plus a screw mechanism, which is apparently all you need to effectively relieve the pain in less than 30 minutes.
After gently pulling the side of the nail up with the tool, you dip your foot in warm water for 20 minutes, which is supposed to help pull the skin.
Most ingrown toenails can be easily fixed, but if it gets really serious it can cause a bone infection. In severe cases, you will need to go see your podiatrist in order to get it removed.
