For the past two years, I have been getting ingrown toenails and I have tried almost everything to get rid of them. My first time getting one, I went to the doctor and he put needles into the toe and then cut it, but it didnt work... then the second time I had it, I tried cutting my own... that didn't work either and it was very painful. A while back I started to get yet another one and I went to the hospital and the doctor put me to sleep, then he burned the sides of my nail so it would not grow back, sprayed it with some liquid, and then he burned the infection off the skin also. I am getting another one right now and I tried putting the cotton under the nail, but it doesn't work either.
I had to quit sports because of this problem and I don't know if I can put up with more of those damn needles in my toe... the pain is too intense.
I would really like to know if anyone has any tips on how I can actually get rid of this problem. I cut my nails the right way. I have researched on the internet and they all tell me to do things that don't work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
