I have a really bad ingrown toenail on my right foot

Customer Question

Hello. I have a really bad ingrown toenail on my right foot on both sides of my nail and it's very infected. I get ingrown toenails quite often and I'm actually planning on going to a podiatrist really soon. For now I was hoping if you could tell me some home remedies i could do to help the infection. I can't wear tennis shoes because it hurts and my sock will have blood and this green looking liquid. I would appreciate your help very much! :) Thanks
