Experts say at least six million Americans develop painful ingrown toenails
each year. But regularly soaking ingrown nails in warm salt water baths can
cure these painful infections within four days, say scientists at California ’s
Stanford University . The salt in the mix naturally nixes inflammation, plus it’s
anti-bacterial, so it quickly destroys the germs that cause swelling and pain.
Just mix 1 teaspoon of salt into each cup of water, heat to the warmest
temperature that you can comfortably stand, and then soak the affected foot
area for 20 minutes twice daily, until your infection subsides.
