"Bathroom surgery" at home is not advised. It is important that the offending nail border be removed in it's entirety to help prevent infection. In addition, a procedure can be performed to keep the ingrown nail from coming back. I would suggest calling for an appointment. I will work with you concerning your financial situation.
