Ingrown Nails

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014 Innovative Foot and Ankle

Ingrown nails result when the corners or sides of nails dig painfully into the skin. They are frequently caused by improper nail trimming, but also by shoe pressure, injury, fungus infection, heredity, and poor foot structure. Use toenail clippers to trim nails with a slightly rounded edge. Leave nails slightly longer than the end of the toe and don’t cut into the corners. Often these become infected and become quite painful. A quick office procedure can alleviate this problem quickly. Recurrent ingrown nails can be treated permanently.
