As far as I have read, Vick’s does not treat fungal infections. If there is a fungal infection in the toenails, sometimes I recommend Vick’s, not to treat the infection but to treat the symptoms, vicks allows the nails to soften and decrease pain.

If this is a “one time occurrence” and you have never had this ingrowing nail before, it’s likely that when trimming there was a piece of nail left in the corner. You could leave it alone and see what happens, but there is a chance that it may lead to an infection. I’ve seen it go both ways, where a person has left it alone, it grows out and they just trim it straight across, and sometimes I’ve seen the nail cause an infection. If you choose to leave it alone, I would recommend applying neosporin to the area daily and cover with a bandaid, this works to keep the bacteria load low to try to prevent an infection as well as softening the skin around the ingrowing nail. I hope this helps.
