This doesn't fix your problem long term, but within a day I had less pain. In 3 days inflammation was almost gone. I'm still using it and ordered more just to keep on hand if I have issues in the future. It is supposed to ease the pain and soften the nail so you can lift it or cut it out. After 5 days the nail is slightly softer, but I'm giving it another 2 days before I'll try to cut it out. If you're in pain and don't want to see a doctor, this is a great option.

Does what it claims to do
IT WORKS ! !
This stuff really WORKS ! ! I have been going to get a pedicure for over a year and the ingrown toenails were still there. After using this for about 3 weeks,my skin and my toenails are soft enough to pull up with a nail tool and I'm able to get to the ingrown part cut with the tonail clippers . It is kinda "stinky",but it's worth the smell to get them removed.. I'm still using it to get as much as I possibly can. I highly recommend this to anyone who has ingrown tonail problems ! !
Relieves the pain!
Have used this product (on and off) for years. It allows me over the course of 3 to 5 days to treat my ingrown toenail and eventually to remove the problem part of the nail; not a permanent fix, but takes care of the problem for four to seven months, avoiding a trip to a doctor.
Excellent pain killer for ingrown toe nails.
When I originally purchased this, I was looking for a different brand, Outgro. So, I picked this up and thought I would give this a try. It's more of a gel, so you don't use as much when applying. Suprisingly it almost stops the pain as soon as you apply it on.
First time in years, my big toe doesn't hurt!
I love to walk, but it was becoming so painful because of an ingrown toenail on one foot, that I sometimes wanted to take off my shoes and walk barefoot. I happened to see the Dr. Scholl's product in a drugstore and bought it. I followed the simple directions, and after about three days, I was able to push away the skin and do a little trimming. I did the entire 6-day treatment, did some more trimming and cleaning, and now can walk without any pain, first time in a couple of years. Ignore the sulfur "perfume" It's working!
