Ingrown toenails occur when the nail starts growing into the flesh of the nail bed on either the side or corner of the nail. According to the Mayo Clinic, the common side effects of having an ingrown toenail are redness, swelling, and pain.
Ingrown toenails can also lead to serious infections, so taking proper care of your toenails before and after they become ingrown is very important. The video below introduces several home remedies for treating the condition, but they, of course, do not suffice as a substitute for advice from your doctor. For mild ingrown toenails, however, these remedies may bring about a bit of much-needed relief.
Be sure to watch the video in order to learn about all the symptoms and remedies.
