How can you get an ingrown toe nail to change it's direction of growth without having to go to the doctor?
I am not sure you: Can. I have see in textbooks some place a small "v" shaped wedge in the middle of the toenail in hopes the outer portions grow into the middle. I am not sure i believe this actually happens. A podiatrist when fixing the nail does not make the nail change direction, rather, he decreases the width of the toenail itself. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What can I do for a ingrown toe nail, I don't have insurance, so I can't go to the doctors.I can't even touch it it hurts that bad?
A Big Mosquito.: The idea of having an ingrown toenail removed will bring anxiety to most patients. Rest assured, your toe will be totally numb, although you may feel pressure, there should be no pain. In almost all cases the toe is anesthetized by what is called local anesthetic block. This introduction of fluid might cause some momentary discomfort as it is being injected. In a few seconds, the toe is numb. ...Read more

3 year old had ingrown toe nail, after doctor cut it out it is still a little swollen over a week later, nail is clear doesn't seem like pus.
Residual spicule: There isn't any mention of prescribed antibiotics, or how long the nail was infected for, nor the method in which the nail was 'cut out' there are various techniques used to treat ingrown nails with children, duration of infection and severity also play a role. It is best to have this looked at, as this can be something as simple as a residual nail spicule or as severe as bone infection. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My daughter has a bad ingrown toe nail. Without going to the doctor, is there a way i can get rid of it?
Maybe.: If your ingrown nail is infected, you'll likely need antibiotics, and possibly a nail procedure. While waiting to see your doctor, soak the toe 10 min/day in luke warm water and epsom salts, use a small amount of topical antibiotic ointment, and cover with a bandaid. (occasionally this solves the problem without needing a procedure!). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Left foot. Big toe. Had a ingrown toe nail. Pulled it out. No problem, so i thought. Now i fected for more than 5 months. Went to doctor. Gave me 2 p?
Removal...: ...Is the only permanent solution. Just the painful border can be removed, or the entire nail if necessary. After removal you can let the border grow out again, or your doctor can use a chemical to stop the nail from regrowing. If you're concerned, don't perform bathroom surgery on yourself. That can lead to an infected ingrown toenail, which could require antibiotics. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
