Preventing Ingrown Toenails

Preventing Ingrown Toenails

Ingrown toenails can be caused by injury, shoe pressure, poor foot structure or heredity. While it’s common to trim your nail so that it curves with the shape of your toe, this trimming method can actually make you prone to an ingrown toenail. As the sides of your nail dig into your skin, your skin can become swollen or infected.

Avoid this common grooming mistake by trimming your toenails straight across. Consider trimming your nails after a shower, when they are softer and easier to cut. Also, select only appropriate shoe sizes and pay attention to any foot pain you experience.
