clip it

been dealing with ingrowns on both big toes for years. i saw the doctor, he cut the toe nail about 2 maybe 3 mm from the red, inflamed part and he removed that section of nail. said it would never grow back. yeah right. now i do the same thing. just get some stout nail clippers, the ones that look like scissors. get under the nail as far as you can, if it hurts youre in the quick and the nailbed and pretty close to where you need to be. chomp down and then grab a hold of the nail piece you freed with some tweezers with a good grip. lift until you pull the offending nail from under the skin. if you do it right without breaking the nail off under there then youre gold for about 90 days. oh yeah you just earned a thousand tough man points too. takes some getting used to but it works for me. clean up with some alcohol for the toe and then for you.

Or tough woman points!!!

I suffered with these all my childhood & teenage years & have had them removed in the Dr. office numerous times. I agree it's easier to do yourself! You'll be amazed @ your pain threshold for sure!

Unfortunately, I am having to teach my son to do this also b/c he is prone to them as well:(

I did this when i was 16.

As long as you pull it slow and steady it will work for a while, but if you rip it crooked you inflame the nailbed and end up needing a dr to do a re-section.

I'm tough about some types of pain, but nail injuries are a bit of a phobia. I think I literally could not do this to save my life.

I agree I've been through in grown toe nails only my big toes and you just cut it out and then tough it out

this is exactly what I used to do! tweezers, nail cutters, and a high pain tolerance are the keys, and you can do it. definitely gets tough man points though, hurts like hell.

Thi has been what I have done for years. Unfortunatley if you screw it up, thge pain will increase 10 fold and you will be headed to the Dr anyhow. I am sick of this and am having the nail permenatly removed.
