Ingrown toe nails are a common, painful condition that occur when skin on one or both sides of a nail grows over the edges of the nail, or when the nail itself grows into the skin.
This condition is usually very painful and can be associated with infection of the toe.
Irritation, redness, an uncomfortable sensation of warmth, as well as swelling can result from an ingrown toenail.
Ingrown toenails develop for many reasons, but most likely because you are using the wrong shoes, cutting it wrong or there's a repeated trauma causing the problem.
Regular treatment may be required.
Cutting a 'v' in the middle of the nail does not correct an ingrown toenail.
Hot water baths are extremely harmful.
Antibiotic may be required, consult your GP
Contact the clinic for a consultation and a treatment of your ingrown toenails.
