An ingrown nail is a toenail that appears to be growing into the skin on the sides of the toe instead of growing outward. Many times you may not have done anything differently, and the shape and growth of the nail is hereditary. There may be redness at the edge of the toenail and maybe even a break in skin where you may see drainage-bleeding or otherwise. If you think you may have an ingrown nail, you can try soaking in warm water with antibacterial soap as a start, however the best solution is to have the nail examined by one of our doctors. We can come up with a treatment plan that will answer all your questions and relieve your pain. It may not be an ingrown nail at all! What can it be? Read more about toenail problems here.
