Ingrown Fingernails

I get ingrown fingernails from time to time and I think it has to do with the way I cut my nails. Is there any certain way to go about it?

Hot water

I have an ingrown fingernail. normally I’ll fix it but this time its all the way in the back.What I found out helps is running it in warm to hot water for a while then it soothes down and the nail gets softer weaker than you can mess with it. or leave it. and do the hot water thing a couple times a day.
