Ingrown Toenail
 

Ingrown.jpgThis condition is also a possible inherited trait ! Yes, ingrown toenails run in families as well. Simply put, if the side of a toenail presses down into skin at its side and creates pain, it is an ingrown toenail. There are various severities pending on the shape or thickness of the nail. Sometimes there is drainage, bleeding and or proud flesh almost engulfing the side of the nail. One should never pry something under the nail trying to lift and cut it out or stuff cotton under edge to hold it up. One of three things usually occurs, you leave a piece behind, you cut yourself or result with pain and infection or all three ! This condition is easily fixed in the office setting.
