Ingrown Toenail Treatment
An ingrown toenail is one that grows into the skin and the area becomes red, hot and swollen, infected and irritated. Because the nail has grown into the skin and created an opening, it is prone to infection and can be rather painful becoming worse as the inflammation increases. There are a few reasons why people may suffer from an ingrown toenail: one, it could be due to an incorrect nail-cutting technique where a piece of nail is left on the deeper side of the nail and as this grows, it pierces the skin creating an opening; two, you may have experienced damage to the nail from injury or accident and the shape of your nail has been altered which then causes deformity and the ingrown toenail to occur, and three, the hereditary factor which means some people’s toes just have a natural predilection to developing an ingrown toenail. The good news is though that the pain and inflammation don’t have to continue to remain that way; there are ways to treat it. Antibiotics are one effective way to treat the infection but it won’t repair the nail issue itself.
