Based on your symptoms and physical examination, your doctor can determine if you have an ingrown toenail and if you have an infection. In most cases, the treatment to follow will be:
- Warm foot bath several times a day.
- Antibiotic cream.
- Wear open shoes or sandals until the condition improves.
When there is a more severe infection, a procedure will be necessary to remove the ingrown nail fragment, or in more severe cases, remove part of the nail and the affected tissue below it.
