Tuck a small pice of cotton batting under the corners of the nail. This will prevent it from growing into the skin.

I haven’t found anything to prevent it.  I have one that it permanently ingrown.  I had it cut out by a doctor and it grew back, at least not as deep in the skin thankfully.  I usually try to cut my nails straight across to prevent problems.

If you start to feel like it is becoming ingrown do warm/hot water soaks every day, which will soften it a bit at which point you should be able to lift up that edge.  I hadn’t heard of the cotton idea but you could probably get some in there after soaking it (I’m not sure if it works though!)
