Avoid pressure on the foot sp. toes. Avoid standing for prolonged periods. Rightly avoid tight shoes. Occasionall sp. while sleeping elevate your lower limb to keep circulation good.

Hello there...., Choose sensible footwear. Consider wearing open-toed shoes or sandals until your toe feels better.... The toe usually heals well after the procedure. The primary concern is whether the nail will become ingrown again, which can occur even after destruction of the nail-growing cells. The overall rate for recurrence of an ingrown toenail is 10%-34%... If part of the toenail was removed, it will grow back within 12 months....
