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.

Images Ingrown Toenail Filing

Images of ingrown toenail filing are worth looking at if you're going to considering filing your own ingrown toenail because like most things in life (and medical science) there's a right and a wrong way to do things. For starters with ingrown toenails you want to clip them in a straight across manner as opposed to the way that fingernails are cut with a more natural curvature for those digits. The same rules of clipping apply to filing when managing a problem area. In some instances the filing can be easier or more difficult depending on each individual ingrown toenail and the manner that the troublesome problems are occurring. Generally speaking a toenail clipper is better for cutting toenails with these problems than a conventional file but overall the best strategy does depend on the particular situation.

NOTE: Whether you're using a toenail file or a set of toenail clippers or ingrown toenail files it's of the utmost importance to use sterilized instruments that have been disinfected by washing in scalding water and preferably also applying some sort of bacteria killing cleaning agent like the proper soaps or chemicals for this job. Alcohol swabs might be an excellent option but depending on the issues you're having you'll probably want to consult a professional physician before taking any drastic measures like an ingrown toenail operation. Just keep in mind that you should use common sense when approaching any attempt to take out an ingrown toenail.
