Ingrown toenail

What are Ingrown Toenails?

An ingrown toenail is a very common nail impairment. It occurs when the corners or sides of the nails dig painfully into the soft tissue of nail grooves, often leading to irritation, redness and swelling. Usually, toenails grow straight out; sometimes, however, one or both corners or sides of toenails curve and grow into the flesh. The big toe is the most common location for ingrown toenails, but other toes as well can also become affected with this condition.
