Ingrown toenails make ya' wanna say every possible cuss word in the world. Believe me, I know. I'm a stay home mom of 2 toddlers & ingrown toenails over stand there welcome very fast.

The first time I had one, my dad took me to the doctor. He didn't waste NO time. The doctor said to soak it in warm salt water for about 15 to 30 minutes and dry it off with a clean towel.

Now, that I'm an adult. Who just turned 30. I've been cursed with the best luck of getting one return.

I've been putting band aids & nelesporin on. Cleaning with alcohol wipes. Separating the skin & nail with an alcohol wipe. Taking Ibprofen. I've tried the oragel to numb the pain. I've done the warm salt water soak for 15-30 minutes. I've cleaned with anti bacterial soap. I've made band aids out of paper towel & tape just to have something more breathable & been wearing socks. Anything to make it more comfortable to chase little ones around. I wanna try & cut into it but I haven't had the time.

I've read SO many helpful info on ingrown toenails. Here's to this one going away & to who ever is reading this to get there's healed & lets try not to go through this again.

The main thing is, to keep it clean & make the discomfort go away...where's that epidural when ya' need it!!
