  • I've had them before, and I've just removed them myself. It sucks and it's painful. You can also soak your foot in some Epsom salt solution, even warm water will ease the pain and help it drain faster.

  • I've always cut them myself. I always get them if I wear close-toed shoes for long periods of time.

  • Cut them out myself. I take a pair of cuticle scissors & cut the side of the nail as far in as possible then rip it out with needle nose pliers. Soak in hot water & epsom salts to drain any infection
