When it comes to ingrown nails there is hardly anything I would consider more annoying. Walking around all day trying to pretend your nail isn’t digging and cutting into your foot the whole time is something I would not wish on my worst enemy.
An ingrown nail happens when for whatever reason the nail grows into the soft tissue rather than out. This most commonly happens on our big toes but it can happen on any of them. It is painful and can cause severe swelling. These can be caused by things like trimming your nails the wrong way, wearing shoes that are too tight, socks that are too tight, or in my case bad luck.
When it comes to getting rid of your ingrown nail you need to act fast. The sooner you take care of it the better. This is something that can become so severe you will have to undergo surgery to have it cut out. For me this remedy did the trick, it was easy and cleared things up quickly. Before jumping straight into seeing a doctor I suggest you try this.
Ingrown Toenail Remedy
- Soak your feet in warm water with about 2 tablespoons of ACV mixed in for about twenty minutes several times a day. (The ACV will fight off any sort of infection that could be lurking in the irritated area.)
- After you have done this for a few days you will need to place the dental floss under your toenail as best you can and continue to do this until the edge of the ingrown toenail has begun coming out of the skin where it has grown in.
- Apply coconut oil to the area as much as you feel you need, once the ingrown part has come to the surface clip it off and reshape your nail.
- This should only be about a three-day process at most and if you ingrown nail is not as bad as mine was you could probably get it done in one day.
This method worked wonders for me and has been a lifesaver, to say the least. If you are dealing with a painful ingrown nail do not suffer, do this and relieve your pain. This remedy will provide you with almost instant relief. Enjoy!
