There are a number of reasons why you may develop an ingrown toenail. Trimming the nail too short, minor injuries, and genetics can all cause the corner of your toenail to grow into the surrounding flesh. While the pain may initially be mild, if this area is left untreated, it can become red, swollen, and infected.
In this video, you will learn more about the causes and symptoms of ingrown toenails. By understanding how this condition develops, you can take proper preventive steps. However, if you do develop an ingrown toenail, it is important to seek professional treatment. Based on your individual case, a podiatrist will employ the most appropriate treatment method. This will effectively reduce pain in the area and prevent infection.
