What Is An Ingrown Toenail?
Dr. Matthew Neuhaus of Neuhaus Foot and Ankle in Middle Tennessee explains what an ingrown toenail is and why an ingrown nail occurs. Ingrown nails occur when the side of the nail digs into the skin. This is a problem because an ingrown toenail can be very painful, and can lead to the development of an infection. Dr. Neuhaus also describes common ingrown toenail symptoms and advises patients on what to do if they are suffering from this problem.
