Are ingrown nails hereditary?


Oddly enough, ingrown nails can be hereditary! Prevent painful ingrown nails with regular trimming and wearing proper fitting shoes. Any sign of redness, drainage, or swelling should result in a prompt call to our office so our doctors can assess any sign of infection. They can also discuss our permanent procedure that prevents recurrence of these painful nails!
