No matter how great your relationship with your doctor is, you probably don't want to visit their office on a frequent note. So, instead of fretting over long clinic lines and numerous amount of patient why not treat the small ailments and wounds in the home only. 

 

1. Dental Floss: Ingrown toenails can be painful and there is a great chance that it might get infected. But do not worry as there is a thing in your bathroom cabinet that will help you.

Start by soaking your feet in a bucket full of warm water for about 10-15 minutes (make sure to do this on a regular interval throughout the day). After that, take a bit of cotton or waxed dental floss and separate the toenail from the skin. This process will make the toenail to grow above the skin edge. Apply some antibiotic cream ensuring that it does not get infected.

the infection. But in case you run out of the ointment, then tea tree oil is very good to cure the dry and scaly skin and also to soothe the itchy feeling. 

 

3. Duct Tape: Warts are not that of a dangerous disease, but they are painful, disturbing and can be pretty annoying. Lucky for people there is an easy solution to pull them out by using duct tape. And yes we agree it may seem bizarre but believe it, it is effective.
