MD Podiatrist Discusses Home Treatment of Ingrown Toenails

If you’re already suffering from an ingrown toenail, what should you do? You can try soaking the toe in warm (room temperature) water with Epsom salts, says Dan Michaels, DPM.

 

This may soften the skin surrounding the toenail and help to reduce inflammation and pain. It is important for the water to not be too hot in order to prevent damage to the surrounding tissues, Dr. Michaels says.
