Ingrown toenail? Calcium? please help

I've been told I have a problem with calcium growths and ingrown toenails, but I don't know if the the latter caused the former or vice versa. The term "galmatoma" (sp?) was used to describe my condition, but I want another opinion.

I had 3 such problems on my feet at once about a year ago (one on each side of the big toe on my left foot, one on my right big toe) I had these removed twice, but they keep on recurring. the funny thing is, on my left toe, there is no nail left to cause and ingrown toenail but the edges still swell up and appear red. Right now on my right toe, the pain came roaring back about 2 weeks ago and it too appears red (up to about the flesh just behind the start of the nail). It releases that pus that I've had before. my question is, should I worry about infection? Should I just take care to put antiobiotic on my big toes all the time?

The two times I had the procedure to have them removed, they always came back. I really don't want to have to go through it again (the pain, hassle, and money) only to have them come back. Is there any way I can rid myself of this?
