Ingrown toenails are caused when the border of the nail grows into the adjacent skin fold. "Over-aggressive pedicures, trimming toenails too short, and trying to trim the edges of toenails at the corners too aggressively can all cause the nail to get infected and grow further into the fold," warns D. Sean Sweeney, DPM, of Sweeney Foot & Ankle.

To correct an ingrown toenail is a simple in-office procedure, where the toe is numbed and the ingrown portion of the nail is removed. Phenol is then applied to kill the nail root, causing the nail to grow back properly. Relief is immediate.
