A Dremel Engraving tool with a 7134 Diamond Point is ideal for removing deep ingrown toenails. Don't use the rotary tool with this method. Use the Dremel Electric Engraver Tool or a similar engraving tool. The goal is to grind down the deep ingrown toenail with hardly any pain or blood. Maintain an angle of about 45 degrees as you work your way down from the tip of your toe back towards the root. The goal is to grind away the part of the nail that is deeply ingrown. Wear a dust mask. You may want ear plugs too. This is tedious. It will take more than one session. It may take hours just to do one deep ingrown toenail. Soak before using the Dremel tool. Do this over a period of days if the toenail is ingrown deeply. Get someone else to do this if possible because using a power tool on your own toenail is uncomfortable, tiring, and dangerous. Use other methods of sterilizing if necessary for fungal infection or other infection. Relief should start after you soak your feet once a section of the ingrown nail is removed. You may also use the side of the Dremel bit to shave down the nail if it is hard and uneven, but a buffing tool would be better for that. Do NOT poke into your skin or you may get a drop of blood. This is mostly painless, but it is a shock to have a lot of work done on your feet, so having someone else do it is better so you can just endure it. A week after removing the ingrown part of the nail you should see the deep gorge push up. Use the bit to shave back infected skin, but only the old, hard skin and nail fragments that may not have been removed earlier. A steady motion is safer than a fast motion. Try to be precise. Have good lighting and a fan to blow away the nail dust or wear a face mask. A podiatrist may suggest medications if you accidentally damage your nail or foot. Above all have extreme patience. Once you get the ingrown toenail out you will feel great relief. In most cases it is only the big toes that get severe ingrown conditions, but other toes may also become ingrown if they are infected or naturally tend to become ingrown. Use this method to grind out ingrown toenails and use other methods to keep this condition from returning.
