READ FIRST: I'm just a guy who's had ingrown toenails and then stumbled on a way to manage them and I think (fingers crossed) put them behind me. One time I even had to go into a podiatrist and have an ingrown toenail surgically fixed. It was not pleasant. A buddy turned me onto this topical solution called Outgro (pictured to the right). It's cheap and it really works. Basically it numbs the area where your ingrown nail is digging into your sensitive skin, (so that's nice) for some quick pain relief. Secondly, when the skin is numbed up it's more manageable to get in there with the right (sterile) tools and fix the problem yourself. This Outgro stuff is cheap and works well, but for whatever reason isn't at most drug stores (at least where I live) so I order it online. It's surprisingly cheaper that way too.

Ingrown Toenail Photo

The following depictions of ingrown toenail photo images may be a bit disturbing to some readers but I will let you know up front that the photos chosen here are pictures that are not meant to be grotesque but rather informative about the various stages and severity of ingrown toenail problems and hopefully in some way can serve a beneficial purpose for people dealing with this seemingly unsightly problem and perhaps through seeing other images browsers of this web page will feel more normal and comfortable seeking help for their issue with a doctor or similar professional.
