Oweee! I think I've got ingrown toenails.

And they hurt. It's the inside top corner of both my big toes. The nail's slightly turned inward, and there's hard skin underneath it. From what i have read, they are ingrown toenails. Any suggestions on what can I do with them?

Cut a "v" in the middle of the toenail - in the white bit of the toenail obviously - this seems to draw the sides together a bit.

Or go to a chiropodist - think the can get infected.
