Taking Charge of Your Health

Any person, of any age can suffer from some
sort of nail problem that can be caused by several different things. Your fingernails can get thicker, weaker,
lose their color, or grow irregularly. In some cases, they can also fall off, causing
a new nail to grow. One of the most common problems is the ingrown
nail, or onicocryptosis, which happens when the tip of the nail penetrates the soft skin
around it. Ingrown nails can annoy both men and women
of all ages, causing pain, discomfort and even more serious inflammations. Ingrown toenails are the most common, especially
on the biggest toe. Treating ingrown nails can be very delicate,
difficult and painful, and if the nail gets infected, treatment could take a long time. Fortunately, there are a few natural ways
to treat ingrown nails: 1. Apple cider vinegar Apple cider vinegar is a very efficient treatment
for ingrown nails. All you have to do is mix a fourth of a cup
of vinegar with two cups of warm water, and dip your nail in it to lessen pain and discomfort. Vinegar can also protect wounds from infection
when applied directly, due to its antibacterial properties. Always remember to use a good quality vinegar
(organic if possible). 2. Homemade antiseptic cream This remedy can help fight infection and lessen
pain. Here is how to make it: Ingredients 5 drops of eucalyptus essential oil;
5 drops of lavender essential oil; 5 drops of tea tree essential oil;
2 drops of peppermint essential oil; 1 drop of oregano essential oil;
3 tablespoons of cold pressed coconut oil; 3 tablespoons of aloe vera gel. Instructions Mix the coconut oil and aloe vera gel in a
bowl. If the oil is solid (this happens when temperatures
are very low) melt it in a double boiler. Once this is done, add the essential oils
and mix well. Now store the cream in a glass jar in a cool,
dry environment. Apply this remedy every night, massaging it
gently around the affected area. 3. Epsom salt Soak your feet in a bowl of warm water and
Epsom salt. Let them sit for 15 minutes. This will help the nail soften and heal quicker. 4. Lemon Lemon can be used to treat several things,
including ingrown nails. All you have to do is cut a lemon in half
and rub it on the affected area. Do this every night, and avoid exposing that
area to sunlight. 5. Salt water Make a salt water solution (using filtered
water). Before going to bed, dip your infected nail
in this solution then wrap it in gauze. Let it sit all night long.

  1. Omg thankyou i have 2 ingrown nails on the same toe and my toe is purple and swollen im going to use these and then go to the doctor but thankyou verry much😯😯😢😢😢😢

  2. This is not a remedy. This is how to cope with the pain. There’s a difference between extracting and ingrown toenail and lessening the pain.

  3. Guys I just came back from operation,it wasnt painful at all,only pain you fell is when he puts injection in your toenail and thats it you dont fell anything after,you can look if you want when he is doing operation but that depends just on you.After operation now Im told I wont be able to walk 3 days on my operated leg but and afor 3 days I am going to doctor so he can see condition on toenail.I feel pain 30 minutes after operation because injection stopped working but you take some pills and the pain drasticlly fall down.Thats it

  4. I Just want to share this to all of you. 2yrs ago i have my operation due to the ingrown it was infected so I need to have the operation then now It is painful again. im gonna try one of the product here that you've been suggested I hope it will works😊

  5. Btw if it's really mad I recommend going to a foot doctor. My review is that they inject something that will make your toe numb and when they cut off the piece going through the skin you only feel a pinch.

  6. You only missed one remedy probably as effective as the ones you mention here. Call a shaman to dance around your foot waving herbs and intoning chants, and don't forget to light incense and patchouli. What I'm getting at is that none of this treats A DAMN TOENAIL STICKING INTO YOUR TOE.

  7. can somebody please help me I don't know what happen to my big toe at first I had an infection it took over 2 months to get rid of but my for never went back to its original look now it's back and I don't know what to do it hurts when I walk or when I press on it

  8. The way the doc did it is he cut my toenail open it hurts for a little bit but i was fine it was to let all the puss out puss is created by blood that stays near the toe after take some neosporn and put it on ur toe to get rid of the bacteria. Soak ur feet in warm water 2 times a day. I had to take pills though. Also you can NOT run or anything when ur toe is still injured. Get a docters note! I had to take 5 pills a day even some in 3 in the morning. It was awful but it helped! I had to take 5 pills for 5 days. After 5 days the ingrown toenail was gone and it only hurts at the end of my nail but the swollenness is gone the puss gone its all gone but now i have an ingrown toenail thats not infected like the other one and now i soak my toe in warm water and put neosporn on it and at school a bandnade. Now if ur shoes are wet. And there tight. DONT WEAR THEM THATS HOW I GOT MY INGROWN TOENAIL give ur toe some air i hope this was helpful.c:

  9. When they were mentioning all those oils like tf, definitely aint finding any of that shit in the hood. Mfs making hairy potter potions

  10. You only need one drop of each essential oil. In America, we think more is better, but essential oils, especially on open wounds, go to the liver and overdoing it can cause more harm than good. One drop goes a long way, and the carrier to oil ratio in this video is much too low for the amount of essential oil drops suggested. Research is wonderful.
