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 Pain

Ingrown toenail pain.Ingrown toenail pain is for most of us what causes us to finally admit that we have a problem that needs to be taken care of. Even for a lot of folks that have no problem seeing a doctor for any number of personal problems there can still be some reluctance about sharing the poor condition of ones feet even with a trusted physician.

An untreated ingrown toenail problem can quickly lead to pain that certainly can vary but in almost all instances the pain is directly related to the problem area coming in direct contact with something that applies pressure to the very sensitive area. While the cause of an ingrown toenail definitely varies from one individual to another it most often has to do with how cutting toenails is handled. In short the road for permanent ingrown toenail removal is paved with the old adage that an ounce of prevention is forth a pound of cure. Having said that if you're reading this post you most likely have already found yourself in a position of needing immediate relief for ingrown toenail pain and based on my personal experience there is no better bet for your money than picking up at least one bottle of Outgro, an ingrown toenail remedy that can safely be done from home.

Of course there are professional alternatives but for many people worried about the cost of ingrown toenail removal it's highly recommended that if time permits you take a serious look at picking up a bottle of Outgro to help ingrown toenails immediately.
