Dental Floss Remedy

Dental Floss

Dental Floss – Home remedy for Ingrown Toenails: Soak your toe in warm water. Once the nail is softened from soaking, take a piece of absorbent cotton and twist it so that it is like a thick strand of thread or twist together a few strands of dental floss which is not waxed. Gently wedge the thread under the corner of the toenail. That should prevent the nail from cutting into the skin. Repeat a couple of times every day until the ingrown toenail grows straighter and outwards.

Always seek the advice of your doctor before taking herbal medications
