Homeopathic Tip of the Week: Ingrown Toenail
Here’s a homeopathic treatment for an ingrown toenail. Now first let me make it absolutely clear that all ingrown toenails should be seen by a doctor, because some of them need to be treated by surgery, which is very successful. However, many times doctors opt for ‘conservative’ (read ‘non-surgical’) treatment of various sorts including a sit-and-wait policy. In these cases it’s well worth taking a homeopathic remedy and the remedy of choice in this situation is Magnetis polaris Australis. Take one pill in a 30c strength three times a day for three days. You may be surprised by the result. To prevent ingrown toenails, always cut your nails straight across and not in a curve.
It is a good prescription, worth trying.

Choose the one that matches you.
Infected ingrown toenails:
For nails that become infected, take one of the following every hour for up to ten doses. Seek expert help if the condition does not improve.
Take Belladonna in the early stage for hot, red, tender and throbbing skin at the base of the nails.
Use Hepar sulph for tender skin around the nails. Pus is expelled from the base of the nails when pressed.
Take Silicea for an infection that heals slowly.
You can try with 30c potency.
Ask for clarification, if you need any.
♥ gavinimurthy last decadeI keep on getting an ingrown nail. When I feel the slight pain on the nail, I simply take the file and push the nail out and this prevents it from getting infected. Undoubtedly if yours is infected, visit a doc and he may do the same. I agree that it hurts like (forgive me) hell, but better in the long term.
