Podiatrists at Keep Me Walking Podiatry in Adelaide are experienced in treating ingrown nail.

Ingrown toenails happen when the edge of the nail curls into the skin, breaking the skin and causing pain. Pain from ingrown toenails can be excruciating, even with the slightest touch. Many patients complain that even the blanket at night may be too painful. Ingrown toenails may occur at any toe but most commonly occur at the big toe

Causes of Ingrown Toenails:

Some of the common causes of ingrowing toenails include:

• Genetics
• Tight fitting shoes
• Cutting nails too short
• Injury to the nail
• Sweaty feet leading to softened nails 

Sometimes ingrown toenails may cause an infection due to the compromised skin caused by the penetration of the nail. This will cause pain, tenderness, swelling, and release of pus-like fluid.
