  • Ingrown Toenails

    Ingrown toenails are a common condition in which the corner or side of a toenail grows into the soft flesh.

    pain, redness, swelling and, sometimes, an infection

    Soak the foot in warm water 3 to 4 times a day if possible. After soaking, keep the toe dry, Gently massage over the inflamed skin, Place a small piece of cotton or dental floss under the nail. Wet the cotton with water or antiseptic.

    Tight-fitting shoes or high heels cause the toes to be compressed together and pressure the nail to grow abnormally.Improper trimming of toenails can cause the corners of the nail to dig into the skin. Nails should be trimmed straight across, not rounded.Disorders such as fungal infections of the nail can cause a thickened or widened toenail to develop.Either an acute injury near the nail or anything that causes the nail to be damaged repetitively (such as playing soccer) can also cause an ingrown nail.If a member of your family has an ingrown toenail, then you are more likely to develop one, too. Some people's nails are normally more rounded than others or the underlying bone can be more "upturned," which increases the chance of developing ingrown nails.
