Ingrown toe nail

 

Ingrown toenails are a very common problem affecting primarily the great toenail. An ingrown nail curves down and into the surrounding skin as it grows, causing the skin to grow over the nail. Symptoms of ingrown toenails are sore, often painful, nail folds with various degrees of redness, swelling, and sometimes clear or yellow drainage. Frequently, ingrown toenails resolve without medical treatment. Complicated cases may require treatment by a foot care specialist.

Ingrown toe nails care caused by the sideways growing portion of nail acting like a foreign body and pokes into or pinches off a small piece of skin at the outer edge of the toe. This may cause a break in the skin, causing inflammation and possibly infection. The inflammation often causes more thickening of the nail skin fold, further exacerbating the problem. The protruding piece of nail keeps pushing into the skin, causing further injury and pain.
