Doctor Oz said that ingrown toenails are painful, but even worse is that ingrown toenails can cause bone infections, especially if you have diabetes or problem with the blood supply to your leg. So Dr. Oz gave us the top reasons for ingrown toenails and the best home remedies to cure ingrown nails.
Major Causes of Ingrown Toenails
1. Tight shoes or hosiery
2. How you clip your nails
The best way to cut your nails is straight across, and not too low. If you cut the edges or sides of your toenails to make them appear more rounded, then they won’t have a guiding rail to help the nail grow straight.
Home Remedy Cures for Ingrown Toenails
1. Lift your nail slightly with a qtip and push a piece of cotton underneath. Leave the cotton there for a day and replace.
2. Use a bandaid to pull the skin around your toenail away from the nail so that it can get back into its ridge. You want to pull the skin off and away from the toenail.
