Thank you for your contact to health care magic.
I read and understand your concern.
I am Dr Arun Tank answering your concern.
Definitive treatment for the ingrown toenail
is the surgical correction.
Once corrected ingrown toenail never recurs.
I suspect that your previous surgery was not properly conducted. This is the reason why the toe once again is ingrown.
I advice you to again visit the nearby doctor to get it surgically repaired.
Please apply polysporin
ointment over it as it can prevent infection. Such a infection may obstruct the surgical procedure.
Maintain good hygiene at toe nail by cleanliness at the nail site. For this dip the nail on hot normal saline for few minutes there after clean it with napkin with pressure. This will clear the diry on the angle of the nail.
I will be happy to answer your further concern on bit.ly/DrArun.
