Ingrown Toenails

What Are Ingrown Toenails?

Ingrown toenails occur when the edge of the nail grows into the surrounding skin, causing pain, redness, swelling, and potential infection. This condition often results from improper trimming, tight shoes, injury, or genetic predisposition. It's important to address ingrown toenails promptly to prevent infection and alleviate discomfort.

Treatment and Care for Ingrown Toenails

Ingrown toenails need professional care for proper treatment and prevention of infection. Soaking in warm, soapy water can provide temporary relief, but consulting a podiatrist is essential for tailored treatment and pain relief. Comfortable footwear and proper nail care help reduce irritation.
