8 Home Treatment for Ingrown Toenail

Many people have the habit of cutting their nails way too close to the skin, sometimes damaging the underlying skin as well. Before you know, you are faced with a painful and distressing situation called ingrown toenails.

As the name suggests, the toenail that has been trimmed off rather too close to the skin starts growing right through your skin and causes dense pain and creates all kinds of infections of the toenail.


8 Home Treatment for Ingrown Toenail

Dust and grime start accumulating in this area and you will have difficulty cleaning the nail as well. Before it turns to a severe case of infection and loss of the toenail itself, let’s explore the wonder remedies that are available naturally.

Alcohol

Before you take any treatment for the infection, the toenail has to be successfully evacuated from the flesh which is not an easy task, considering the pain and the thickness of your nails. To make the nails soft, take a cotton ball and soak in alcohol. Apply on the nails and leave it for a few minutes. Once it is soft, it is easy to pull it up from the skin and trim it into an adequate length, not too close this time please!

Water

Water that is hot may also be used for making the nails soft and removing the inflammation and bacterial action. Soak your toes in a high temperature that your skin can withstand. After 20 minutes, extract the soft nail out from the flesh and trim it off. It is now ready for treatment.

Salt

Epsom salt is a remedy for softening the toenail as well as healing and busting the infection on the toenail.  Take a shallow basin and fill it with warm water. 

Soak your leg for 15 minutes for the softening and healing action to take place. 

Wipe with a dry towel and remove the nail edge from the flesh for trimming. 

Continue soaking every day until the infection subsides and your nails grow back naturally.

Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide is a bleaching agent and is used for removing the infection from the skin. After trimming the ingrown toenail, wash legs well and pat dry before applying hydrogen peroxide solution. Using a cotton swab, apply hydrogen peroxide on the nail. Continue until the infection starts retracting and your nails are removed from the inflammation as well.

A Slice of Lemon

Lemon is another way to remove the infection and inflammation from your toenail. This too has to be done after you soften the toenail and trim it to prevent further growth into the skin. Now cut a lemon into two pieces and rub one piece on the toenail.

Squeeze the juice out and allow it to flow on the infected toenail. Allow the lemon juice to dry. Apply frequently throughout the day and every day until the toenail is completely cured and the infection no longer leaves you with pain and inflammation.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Using a cotton ball, apply apple cider vinegar for the healing action to take place and also remove the infection and leave the skin clear and well taken care of.

I was diagnosed of this deadly disease in the year 2014 ever since then i was taking my medications, until i met the great herbal doctor, though i never believed in herbal med. I saw many testimonies on how a great herbal doctor cured their deadly diseases. I contacted him through his phone number. I called him, he asked me to send him my email, which i did. He gave me a form to fill, I filled it and send it back to him. He told me that he required some items in which he will use in preparing the herbal medicine for me. I don't know where to find the items he required. He told me that the only alternative is for me to send him the money, then he can help me to purchase the items from the items sellers. I promised myself to do anything to get cured. I sent him the money. He bought the items and he prepared the herbal medicine and send to me through courier service delivery and i make use of it as he instructed. few weeks later he asked me to go for check-up, when i did the check-up i was tested HSV Negative.
