i just recently had an ingrown toenail and had to follow these steps:
1) Soak it in hot water and epsom salt for about 20 min or longer.
2) clean the toe out with q tips soaked in hydrogen peroxide or iodine after having soaked it.
3) put a bandaid and antibiotic ointment on it and change as needed.
4) it wouldn't hurt to take some antibiotics if you have any. it looks infected.
trust me the epsom salt thing works really well...did he drop something heavy on his toe or something? i accidentally did that once when i was a kid and my toenail fell off and grew back.
