In brief: Simple procedure

Sometime the edge can be cut back.
Sometimes anesthesia is used and then the edge is cut away & cauterized to stop regrowth.

In brief: Many

Depending on the severity, toenails can be treated with anything as simple as cream to toenail removal, to complete toenail destruction.
Check with your family doc.

In brief: Permanant correction

This is the start of ingrown toenails , that can be painful and get infected.
A minor procedure can be done in the podiatrists office that can permanantly correct this problem for you. It is called a partial matrixectomy . It is etter to be proactive and correct it before it gets infected and painful.

In brief: Embedded Toenail

Trimming a digital nail straight is the reccomended method.
Sometimes, in an attempt to remove a painful and embedded margin of the nail, the adjacent soft tissue becomes infected - as seen in the photo.... Soak in epsom salt and clease the digit thoroughly.... Use an antibiotic cream and apply a dry bandage. If the condition worsen, see a board certified podiatrist.....
