Ingrowing nails can be very painfull and sometimes can lead to infections of the toe called paronychia which can aggravate the pain..Please dont try to remove the nail on your own.I would suggest you consult a surgeon to get the ingrowing nail removed under aseptic conditions with antibiotic coverage.
