What is ingrown nail?

An ingrown nail is a condition where the edge or corner of a nail grows into the surrounding skin instead of over it. It commonly occurs in the toenails, but can also affect the fingernails.

How is ingrown nail formed?

This can occur due to various factors such as improper nail trimming, wearing tight shoes, injury to the toe, or genetic predisposition. As the nail penetrates the skin, it can cause pain, redness, swelling, and potential infection. If left untreated, the condition can worsen and lead to complications. Regular maintenance of proper nail care and wearing comfortable footwear can help prevent the formation of ingrown nails.
