So you think you may have in ingrown nail, what do you do?

If you notice that the corner of your toenail is increasingly more painful and irritated, make sure it is not an ingrown nail.  An ingrown nail, if left untreated, could easily turn into a more serious infection.  It occurs due to tight shoes, or an irritation due to trauma or even the trauma of a pedicure.  You will see an incurvated nail growing into the surrounding skin and nail folds.  You may see redness, swelling, and feel pain along the nail border as well.   Your best bet is to get it looked at by a doctor sooner than later, because if you wait, it can lead to an infection.
