Painful ingrowing toenails can be very annoying and often occur at the most inopportune times. There are many causes for ingrowing toenails. Tight shoes as well as steel toed shoes can create pressure and irritation leading to pain. Certain activities or sports can lend themselves to painful ingrowing toenails also. We can cause an ingrowing toenail by simply cutting our nails too short or rounding the corners too much. Finally, genetics can play a part in ingrowing toenails. You may always remember having nails that curve excessively on the edges, this nail type can be inherited and lead to reoccuring painful toenails.
Attempting to treat ingrown toenails at home is usually the first line of defense. For this condition home treatment is not recommended. Pain, infection and other serious conditions can develop if not handled properly. Especially if you are diabetic or have any other condition that may inhibit your immune system.
