An ingrown nail is a problem for many people. It is a condition where the nail grows on one side and underneath the skin. It is a painful condition and there are conventional and surgical methods to deal with it. You can also try to treat it at home completely naturally but it needs to be in an early phase without any complications.


Soften the skin and the nails first with this bath.

You will need 5l of water and 3 tsp. of baking soda. The water should be 37oC. after the bath, you should pull out your nail. You can put a plaster on the area of the ingrown nail and this will make the toenail more accessible and will ease the process.

You can put a cotton between the nail and the skin in order to raise it. But you must apply some antibacterial cream before that. Change the wrappers and the cotton after 24 hours and repeat this treatment for 5 days in a row.

If you can’t place the cotton between the nail and the skin, you can prepare a mixture of Aloe Vera, honey, and one garlic clove. This mixture has strong antiseptic properties and just apply it to the affected area.

The most important thing in this process is to soften the skin every day before the treatment.

If there isn’t any improvement consult your doctor!
