  • My man who was a nurse says u can cut it out, trim a "V" in your toenail, or have surgery. Trimming a "V" in ur toenail makes it grow in the middle and forces it to come out.

  • I had one and went to a podiatrist. He cut it out and I watched. I do it myself now. If you are going to do it yourself, make sure you get every bit of the ingrown piece out.

  • Is it really bad? If it's really bad I'd go see a Dr. If it's not too bad sometimes getting a pedicure helps. They usually know the proper way to cut toe nails. That's what I do.
