WOMEN'S HEALTH

Hair/Nails/Skin

Toenails, Ingrown - Ingrown toenails (unguis incarnatus) are acommon toenail problem of uncertain etiology. Various causes include poorly fit (tight) footwear, infection, improperly trimmed toenails, trauma, and heredity. The great toe is the most commonly involved.

An ingrown toenail is a common condition in which the corner or side of one of your toenails grows into the soft flesh of your toe. The result is pain, redness, swelling and, sometimes, an infection. The condition usually affects your big toe.

In most cases, you can take care of ingrown toenails on your own. If the pain is severe or spreading, however, your doctor can take steps to relieve your discomfort and help you avoid complications.

If you have diabetes or another condition that causes poor circulation to your feet, you're at greater risk of complications.

Seek a doctor's advice earlier on caring for an ingrown toenail.

Signs and symptoms

  • Signs and symptoms of an ingrown toenail include:

  • Pain and tenderness in your toe along one or both sides of the nail

  • Redness around your toenail

  • Swelling of your toe around the nail

  • Infection of the tissue around your toenail

Causes

Ingrown toenails result when the nail grows into the flesh of your toe, often the big toe. Common causes include:

  • Wearing shoes that crowd your toenails

  • Cutting your toenails too short or not straight across

  • Injury to your toenail

  • Unusually curved toenails

  • Thickening of your toenails

Risk factors

Anyone can develop an ingrown toenail. But you may be more prone to ingrown toenails if you have toenails that curve down or grow faster at the edges than at the center.

Ingrown toenails are also more common in older adults, because nails tend to thicken with age. This thickening or change to the curvature of your nails can cause ingrown toenails.

When to seek medical advice

If you experience severe discomfort in your toe or pus or redness that seems to be spreading, see your doctor. If you have diabetes or any circulation impairment to your lower extremities, seek the advice of a foot doctor (podiatrist) on how to properly care for ingrown toenails. Also seek prompt treatment for any foot sore or infection.
