Ingrown Toenails: Solutions at Foot & Ankle Specialists of Delray

Overview of Ingrown Toenails
Ingrown toenails, a common but often painful condition, occur when the side of a toenail grows into the surrounding skin. This can lead to discomfort, redness, and swelling, significantly impacting foot health and daily activities.

Causes and Types
The primary causes of ingrown toenails include improper nail trimming, tight footwear, toe injuries, or congenital toenail irregularities. They can vary in severity from mild irritation to severe infection, especially in individuals with circulatory disorders or diabetes.

Symptoms to Watch For
Key symptoms of ingrown toenails are pain and tenderness along the sides of a toenail, redness, swelling, and sometimes infection. If left untreated, the condition can worsen, leading to more significant complications.
