A number of our nails can grow sideways even if they are trimmed constantly.
Whenever this happens, the pores and skin across the ingrown fingernail become inflamed and red. This condition can be very painful and removing the nail by yourself is not an option, because you are increasing the chance of getting an infection.
Trying a natural remedy is the best solution to treat an ingrown toenail.
By following these tips you won’t need surgical intervention.
The secret is in this homemade herbal, antiseptic cream which has a calming effect and cleanses the area.
- 1 drop of oregano essential oil
- 2 drops of mint essential oil
- 5 drops of eucalyptus essential oil
- 5 drops of tea tree oil
- 5 drops of lavender essential oil
- 60 ml of coconut oil
- 60 ml of Aloe Vera gel
Melt the coconut oil in a microwave. After that, mix it with the Aloe Vera gel. Then, add the essential oils. Transfer the mixture to a mason jar. Keep it in cool and dry place.
Use the mixture to rub the area every night, before bedtime. Massage the area gently. Make sure the solution penetrates the skin. Repeat this treatment every night. Once you feel that the pain has stopped and the nail separates easily, cut it out.
The essential oils have potent anti-inflammatory potential, which make them an effective solution to fight off infections. They will speed up the healing process too.
Epsom salt can also be helpful when it comes to treating this unpleasant condition. All you have to do is pour boiled water in a bowl and add some Epsom salt and an antibacterial soap. After that, soak your feet in it. This technique will help you soften the area. Once the pain reduces, cut out the ingrown nail.
Try these natural cures and you will be surprised by the amazing results.
