Suggest remedy for ingrown toenails

I have a problem with ingrown toenails. A couple of years ago I had the foot doctor permanently cut the toenails that always get ingrown out (kill the nerve or what have you). Recently, I ve started to get a spot ingrown again and I ve had to cut it out. It looked like it was getting infected but cleared up a bit. But now it s really itchy....? What would you suggest I do? See a doctor, leave it alone, and why would it be getting ingrown again after I had that procedure done? Thank you for your time...it is very appreciated!!!

HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, if this is the frequently happening ingrowing toe nail then it is advisable to remove the nail completely from the nail bed, and total care need to be taken for antibiotic, then you would get the new nail with excellent texture hope this information helps, take care and have a nice day.
