If left untreated, an ingrown toenail can continue to get worse, causing more and more pain and leading to infection.  The best way to prevent infection is to treat the ingrown toenail as soon as possible.  These ten treatments for ingrown toenail can help you get back on your feet, pain-free.

Make yourself a foot bath with warm water and gentle soap. Some people choose to add Epsom salt to the bath for added relief. Soaking your foot a few times a day in warm water can help to keep the area clean, warding off infection.
