What Causes an Ingrown Toenail?

Ingrown toenails are very common and are easily treatable in most cases. An ingrown toenail occurs when the nail has grown into the skin on the side of the toenail bed, causing pain and inflammation. This happens most often on the big toe but could be on any of the toes where the nail hasn’t been cut correctly, the toes have been crowded in shoes or there has been repeated trauma to the feet.

Use Caution With Ingrown Toenail Treatment

Many people try treatment at home however, this can cause serious complications, especially for patients with diabetes or circulatory disease. Even for otherwise healthy individuals, cutting the toenail back on an infected toe can easily make the infection worse.
