I am having some pain in my left foot thumb, I did some google and I believe it's ingrown toenail. The top right corner is swelling. It first happened in july last year on a day when I walked a lot, but it lasted a week, but it happened again in november and I haven't recovered yet.
The thumb also produces pus that smells really bad, I am very afraid to pull the nail out, will home remedies like warm water soaking and turmeric, coconut oil work?
