You may have seen especially the Dr. Scholl's ingrown toenail pain reliever at your local store. This is a topical solution making claims to relieve pain and treat an ingrown toenail. This topical will not change the shape of the nail so it cannot alone treat the ingrown toenail. It in some cases relieves pain temporarily, but we have also seen irritation as a result of its use, especially if a nail is infected. With some simple soaking at home and use of urea based skin softening creams, sometimes the thickened skin next to the nail can become more soft and less painful. However, if the nail is truly growing in, seeing your podiatrist is the best way to have this addressed properly.
