Ingrown nails, the most common toenail impairment, are nails whose corners or sides dig painfully into the soft tissue of nail grooves, often leading to irritation, redness, and swelling. This is frequently caused by cutting your toenails too short, and can lead to infection.
To combat ingrown toenails, it’s important to keep the nails trimmed neatly, without cutting too close to the skin. If ingrown toenails do occur, a foot and ankle specialist can recommend a variety of treatment options to prevent infection from developing and spreading.
If you suffer from ingrown toenails or other nail problems, the podiatric physicians and surgeons at Ankle & Foot Care Centers can help. Please call to schedule an appointment at one of 18 convenient locations in Ohio today.
