Toe nail infection is also known as Toe nail Fungus. Before you attempt to remove the ingrown nail, soak the toe in warm water. Then cut the nail in straight line. Apply bleach on nail. After cutting the nail if you find the area is infected, treat it immediately with the home remedies given below.

  • Applying mixture of undiluted tea tree oil and few drops of olive oil on infected toe nail is good cure.
  • Mixture of tea tree oil and lavender oil also helps.
  • Add apple cider vinegar in warm water. Soak the toe nail in it for 15-20 minutes. Dry well.
  • Add two drops of oregano essential oil in one teaspoon of olive oil. Apply the mixture on infected area. Oregano essential oil has antiseptic, antibacterial and antiviral properties.
  • Nails soaked in listerine mouthwash helps.
