• Top 3 Reasons For An Ingrown Toenail

    on Aug 9th, 2016

1. Nails were not cut straight across. Angling at the edges causes the skin to grow to meet the nail which then gets stuck

2. Not wearing the right shoes. Wear shoes that give your toes wiggle room. A tight shoe can produce a feeling of an ingrown nail when there isn't one

3. Inherent nail/toe shape. Some people are simply unlucky and they are predisposed to getting an Ingrown nail through No fault of their own

Regardless of why you get an ingrown nail, treating it early is important as infection of the skin and even bone can occur. If softening the nail with antibiotic or placing a tiny fragment of cotton under the irritating edge does not address the problem, seek professional help. Bathroom surgery usually doesn't go well.
