Whether it’s caused by shoe irritation, an injury, or simply nail neglect, toenails can become thick and painful to groom. One out of 50 people will develop a condition called onychogryphosis, which causes your nail to thicken and curve as a form of protection. Unfortunately, this condition is not only unsightly, (it’s commonly referred to as a Ram’s Horn Nail) it can also make it painful to wear most shoes.*
Reduce your risk of onychogryphosis by inspecting your toenails and trim them as needed; also, be sure to avoid tight shoes. If your toenails do become injured, visit your doctor; his or her professional care can stop things from getting worse.
