Firstly, to reduce pressure and therefore pain, remain barefoot as much as possible and limit walking.

You can also take foot baths two to three times a day. To avoid infection, you can use a disposable foot spa kit. It is not only safe but also very convenient to use.

Soak your foot in a basin of hot water with an antiseptic for 10 to 20 minutes. These baths will soften the tissues and reduce tension between the nail and the flesh around it.

To have less pain, a good tip is to insert a small piece of cotton between the corner of the ingrown nail and the flesh: this will prevent the nail from penetrating the epidermis.
