I took tablets to get rid of fungus.
I cut my nail too short to try and cut out the remaining fungus.
I can see my nail starting to get ingrown.
is there anything I can do to prevent?

    Hello and thank you for your question. I often see ingrown nails when patients try to cut their nails too short. If you are concerned of an ingrown nail, I recommend soaking it in warm water and Epsom salt for 5 minutes a day. This will often rid of lose debris and alleviate the pain. If the pain persists and you note redness and swelling, then I recommend seeing a Podiatrist who can discuss options of cutting out the ingrown nail. Good luck!
