In brief: Soaking and Topical
Non-surgical treatments for ingrown toenails are usually not successful especially if there is redeness and drainage from the toe.
The proceudre to remove an infected toenail is a very minor procedure and usually provides immediate relief with little post-operative care. If you suffer from inrgown toenals you seek medical attention from a podiatrist to prevent further issues.

Ingrown toenails are due to poorly fitted narrow shoes, switch to wide toe box shoes.
