Ingrown Toe Nail

Ingrown Toenails is a very common problem. It results from the nail growing inwards into the surrounding nail tissue instead of growing Outwards. This abnormal growth provokes a tissue reaction, which can result in swelling, redness and pain. This, commonly, can get septic, thereby requiring medication. Ingrowths often result if – you wear tight footwear, especially closed shoes.

To prevent ingrown toenails:

Cut the toenails straight across and not curved as with fingernails.

Wear well-fitting shoes.

Start using an antibacterial cream or ointment as soon as you feel ingrowths beginning.

If you have swelling and infection, then see a dermatologist.
