Ingrown Toe Nails
An ingrowing toenail occurs when  a spike or serrated edge of nail penetrates into the flesh of the toe. It occurs most frequently in the big toe and can be extremely painful.
If the offending spike is left it can cause acute inflammation as its grows and can become infected.
Ingrowing nails are normally caused by cutting your toenails incorrectly. Be sure to cut your nails straight across and dont cut too low at the edge or down the side.
Ingrowing toe nails can also be caused by:
  • Tight footwear and socks


  • Brittle toe nails


  • Sweaty Feet
