Ingrown Toenail

Common Symptoms

  • Pain on nail borders with shoes on or with touching the toe
  • Redness on nail borders
  • Infection or drainage from the sides of the toenail
  • Nail corners/edges curve into the sides on the toe

Common Causes of ingrown toenails

  • Genetics
  • Cutting your toenails too short
  • Wearing shoes that are too tight, or too small

Methods of treating an ingrown toenail

  • Trim your toenails straight across
  • Wear shoes that fit properly
  • Soak your foot in Epsom salts/warm water if your nail is ingrown
  • Don’t ever stick cotton or anything else under the nail to “lift the corners”, it could cause an infection
  • Don’t cut a “V” in the middle of the nail-it really won’t change the way the toenail grows
  • Go see a podiatrist and have the nail permanently fixed. There is a 98% chance your nail will never become ingrown again with a simple procedure called a matrixectomy

“I recently saw the video you posted on youtube detailing an ingrown toenail removal. I’ve been suffering from one of these on my left foot for the past 8+ years, and it is getting to the point that I really feel as if I should be serious and take care of it. I had gone to a clinic twice while in high school, and the “surgery” was incredibly painful and not effective, thus my putting it off for years. Your video showed me how fast, painless, and effective the procedure should be, thus helping me ease my fears. Thank you!”
