Just did some self surgery ( - the best kind !) on myself to treat an ingrown nail. Nothing makes you feel more like an android than that.
Using a paperclip, I bend the ingrown nail part upwards. Under that part of the nail I inserted a bit of a paper tissue drenched in an astringent liquid solution, using the clip to jam it in real tight. You know it is successful when you can touch the swollen area without pain or discomfort.
It is important to swap the paper tissue for a new one after no more than half a day !
