After reading your history I can get that you have recurrent ingrown nail problem. It can be treated with simple method of excising the growing area of nail root. Laser treatment or excision both depends on the operating doctor to do it best. I advise you to not pinch or pop the area. You can apply a mild steroid cream such as Cortisone cream mixed with and anti-fungal cream. If itching is present then can take benadryl accordingly.
