Ingrown toenail
Hi, I have an ingrown toenail from past one month. I went to a dermatologist who suggested me to push the nail upwards and to avoid contact of nail going inside the skin. He also gave pain killers for that. But its of no use as it is very painful to even touch the nail and there is a formation of pus. Searching through internet, I followed keeping my leg in warm water with salt. Also I applied turmeric powder. But there is no use of it. Please give me a suggestion
