15 Comments for the Ingrown Toenail Home Remedy

Anonymous

Soak the toe in Epsom salts dissolved in hot water for 20 minutes. Dry thoroughly and then rub with the cut side of a raw onion. Rub the onion juices into the painful areas for about 10 minutes. Wrap with a fresh basil leaf (secure with tape) and put a sock over it overnight. The pain will be gone in the morning and the nail will grow straight.
