Ingrown Toenails

Ingrown toenails will often arise when the edge or corner of a toenail embeds itself into the toe’s flesh. While this can occur with any toe, it predominantly affects the big toe. A seemingly minor issue at first, ingrown toenails can lead to discomfort characterised by pain, redness, and swelling. In more severe instances, the ingrown toenail may even pave the way for infections.

Understanding Ingrown Toenails

The causes of ingrown toenails vary and can include improper nail trimming, wearing tight-fitting shoes, or sustaining an injury to the toenail. Additionally, some individuals may have a genetic predisposition to ingrown toenails. The condition may initially manifest as mild discomfort but can escalate if not attended to, especially if there is an underlying infection.
