What is the best home treatment for ingrown toenail ? Will warm foot bath with Epsom salt help? Will it help prevent infection/abscess ?

In brief: Ingrown toenail

soaking your toe in Epsom salts and warm water is a good treatment at home for an ingrown toenail.
If the pain and swelling and redness does not decrease you will need to see a podiatrist for further evaluation.
