Health Tip: Troubled by an Ingrown Toenail?

An ingrown toenail occurs when a toenail, usually one that’s trimmed too short, begins to grow into the toe’s skin.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says symptoms of an ingrown toenail include:

  • A toe that feels hard to the touch, and appears swollen.
  • Pain, soreness or tenderness in the toe.
  • Redness on the toe.
  • Signs of infection around the nail, including visible pus.
  • Skin growing over the nail.
