I have been suffering bad ingrown toe nail and I caused a lot of damage trying to do the cutting etc. For me to relieve the pain and avoid as much infection as possible is soaking it in vinegar or Epson salt for 15 to 20 min. After soaking it gently push back the skin away from the nail and massage it. It will hurt for a little while but it does help. Put peroxide on it to help draw out the puss. Let it dry as much as possible. Elevate you foot as high as you can do it. It will help the infection and the pressure of the pain. The best best is to see a podiatrist if you can. He numbs it which is the worst part of it. After the numbness wears off you will feel much better.
