Health Tip: Preventing Ingrown Toenail
Avoid these common triggers

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- An ingrown toenail occurs when the nail grows into the skin, causing pain and sometimes an infection.

To avoid the problem, the American Podiatric Medical Association suggests:

  • Trimming toenails straight across.
  • Avoiding tight shoes that squeeze the toes.
  • Protecting feet from injury.
  • Using nail clippers to trim the nails, and using a nail file to gently smooth sharp edges. Never rip a nail with your fingers.
  • Keeping nails trimmed to the tips of the toes.
