"The configuration of the nail borders on some people's toes are significantly curved inward and as such, the nail has a predisposition to becoming ingrown," says Mark Hinkes, DPM, a podiatrist at Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Nashville, TN, who is board-certified in foot surgery and wound care. "In this situation, the person is confronted with the nail borders being tender and just about to become ingrown." This situation makes wearing closed shoes painful and can cause functional disability, preventing people from persuing their normal activities.

Many people elect to try over-the-counter medications. "These products usually contain salicylic acid, a chemical which destroys human tissue painlessly. On a temporary basis, using medications like this may relieve the symptoms of the problem, but it will not eliminate the problem," says Hinkes.
