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 Clippers

Ingrown toenail clippers are for the most part almost the same product as your average clippers for cutting toenails with the notable distinction that ideally they will have the pointed extender that normally is also associated with having a very small file on it. In the very fist post on this site titled "how to help ingrown toenails" a highlighted illustration shows exactly what's being described in the previous sentence.

The right toenail clippers fall into the category of having the right ingrown toenail products such as braces and various other topical solutions and such to fix the issues that are causing the pain and inflammation. Finding some help and relief from the pain makes spending a few dollars on a nice pair or toenail clippers a great use of a modest amount of money. Finding a cure that goes beyond simple home remedies is often the result of having the right products for the job.

Below is the most highly recommended ingrown toenail clipper that was built specifically for ingrown toenails with a slanted cutting surface that can be worked into the odd corner areas where ingrown toenails are most likely to occur. Something to keep in mind is that even if you have access to an old finger nail or toe nail clipper (older than one year) then do yourself a favor and spend a little bit of money to get a brand new state of the art quality piece of equipment.
