What Are the Symptoms of an Ingrown Toenail?
Ingrown toenails usually produce pain that serves as the first warning sign of this condition. Other symptoms may include the following:
- Swelling or redness around the nail of your toe
- A visible or painful infection that affects one toe and toenail
- Pain or tenderness radiating outward from your toenail
These issues can make it difficult to walk or to manage daily tasks. Prompt treatment is necessary to resolve problems with ingrown toenails and to promote the fastest healing and the most reliable mobility for you and your family members.
What Causes Ingrown Toenails?
The underlying causes for ingrown toenails are not fully known. Some of the most common contributing factors, however, include the following:
