hi , im 14 f, 5ft5 8 stone . i have ingrown toenails. my baby toenail grows backwards. since i can remember. all the rest other than my big toe grow forward and turn down. my baby toe on my right foot used to grow backwards , now it is just growing side ways. im just wondering can i treat this problem at home myself, and what are the reasons for my baby toenail growing backwards? also my nails on my big toes are yellow/brown. im sure this is caused by fungi as it grows in warm moist places. is there a way to treat that? i don t wear sandels etc. part of the problem im sure. thanks.

My 13 yr old daughter had surgery on an ingrown toenail 4 days ago. The doctor cut the edge of the nail, removed it and then killed the nail bed. She began experiencing pain and tenderness last night. Today it is slightly swollen, draining clear fluid , red, and tender to the touch. Could this problem be solved with soaking it in Epsom salts or Boric acid solutions. Her toe was infected with a staph infection before the surgery. She is also currently suffering from Mono.
