Ingrown Toe Nails

Ingrown Toe Nails

This condition is a result of the edge of the nail growing into the skin generally in the big toes but not always. This often results in infection which can be very painful. Ingrown toe nails can occur because of the shape and width of the nail, trauma, poor nail cutting technique or tight-fitting shoes.
