Hello there...I can understand your concern. Ingrown tail is a very chronic disease. To prevent recurrences, it is important to remove the nail matrix along with the nail. But chances of recurrences are there. From your description it looks like you could be suffering from paronychia also. You will need oral antibiotics to control the infection. So kindly consult a dermatologist or general surgeon for further evaluation and treatment.
