JAMAICAN PODIATRIST, ANGELA DAVIS STATES, " THE MOST COMMON CAUSE OF INGROWN TOENAILS IS INCORRECT NAIL CUTTING,  DON' CUT THEM TOO LOW AND AVOID DIGGING DOWN THE SIDES.  THE CORNER OF THE NAIL SHOULD BE VISIBLE ABOVE THE SKIN.  IN SOME CASES, GENETIC FACTORS MAY PLAY A PART IN DEVELOPING THE CONDITION, SUCH AS THE WAY YOU STAND OR WALK OR THE SHAPE OF THE NAIL YOU WERE BORN WITH.  IF LEFT UNTREATED, INGROWN TOENAILS CAN BECOME INFECTED.  THE INFECTION CAN SPREAD TO THE TOE AND REST OF THE FOOT.  THE QUICKER YOU GET THEM TREATED, THE LESS PAINFUL THE TREATMENT."

PODIATRIST DAVIS ALSO STATES, "FOR THE MOST BASIC OF CASES, THE PODIATRIST WILL BE ABLE TO CAREFULLY REMOVE THE SPIKE TO GIVE INSTANT RELIEF.  IF THE TOE IS VERY TENDER TO TOUCH AND INFLAMED, PODIATRISTS USE LOCAL ANESTHETIC TO NUMB THE AREA AND REMOVE THE PROBLEM.  IN SOME CASES, THE BEST FORM OF TREATMENT IS TO REMOVE A SECTION OF NAIL PERMANENTLY, WHICH IS A MINOR SURGICAL PROCEDURE THAT USUALLY PRODUCES EXCELLENT RESULTS."
