CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Dr. David Boyd is also treating ingrown toe nails.
You can prevent this by proper toe nail care, regular trimming of toenails straight across and avoiding ill fitting shoes.
Treatment includes soaking the toe of your ingrown nail in epsom salts and warm water daily and trim the nail as mentioned above.
If pain, swelling or drainage persists, see your doctor. Often a simple office surgery can have you back on your feet soon.
