I have an ingrown nail on my left middle toe right now and I just filed it down as much as I could, used my finger nails to try to lift up the nail a bit from the skin by digging under it a little, then put hydrogen peroxide on it. Did that about an hour ago and the pain is now almost completely gone. Hydrogen peroxide is key. Cleans out the infection and filing and gently digging under the nail will relieve some of the pressure from the nail growing pushing into the skin and will direct it to grow in a straighter direction.
