In brief: Soaking

Often mild ingrown toenails can be relieved by soaking in an epsom salt bath.
This can alleviate the inflammation around the nail border. But if the infection does not get better then you really need to see a podiatrist to have the ingrown portion removed to alleviate the condition. Infections left untreated can lead to more serious problems especially if you have other medical problems.
