But, when it comes to ingrown nails, how do you manage to get rid of them? They are so difficult to remove but at the same time, if they grow inappropriately they can harm the skin. If you are diabetic, it can cause infection as well.
Soak Your Feet Or Hands
In order to remove them, you have to soak you feet or hands, wherever there is an ingrown nail, in hot bucket of water. Dip them for about half an hour. To provide softness to your skin, you can even add salt to it.

Place A Cotton Bud
Roll some cotton and carefully place it over the cream and below the ingrown nail. Using the tweezers, place it properly so it doesn’t get out.
