What about ingrown toenails?

Foot & ankle specialists

Ingrown toenails are a common condition in which the corner or side of a toenail grows into the soft flesh. The result is pain, inflamed skin, swelling and, sometimes, an infection. Ingrown toenails usually affect the big toe.

Often you can take care of ingrown toenails on your own. If the pain is severe or spreading, your health care provider can take steps to relieve your discomfort and help you avoid complications of ingrown toenails.

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

Symptoms

Ingrown toenail symptoms include:

  • Pain and tenderness
  • Inflamed skin
  • Swelling
  • Infection

When to see a doctor

See your health care provider if you:

  • Experience severe discomfort in a toe, pus or inflamed skin that seems to be spreading
  • Have diabetes or another condition that causes poor blood flow to the feet and you have a foot sore or infection
