Caring for an ingrown toe nail

Firsty, thank you in advance for your answer. I have asked a question on here before, and appreciate the advice you gave.

I have a sore, and slightly infected big toe. I have managed to bump my toe quite badly, several times a day, making healing even more difficult. I am wearing open toe sandals where possible, to allow air etc.

There is often a bit of puss under the top corner of the nail. Should this be removed or left to heal over by itself? There is also a fair bit of 'dead skin' at the side of the nail that continues to form. Should this be removed, or be left alone.

Any other tips for helping to resolve an ingrown toe nail?
