Ingrown Toenail – Symptoms & Causes

  • Ingrown toenail symptoms include:
  • Pain and tenderness in your toe along one or both sides of the nail
  • Redness around your toenail
  • Swelling of your toe around the nail
  • Infection of the tissue around your toenail.

 

Common ingrown toenail causes include:

  • Wearing shoes that crowd your toenails
  • Cutting your toenails too short or not straight across
  • Injuring your toenail
  • Having unusually curved toenails

 

Here at East Texas Foot and Ankle Centers, Dr. Kent  can diagnose an ingrown toenail based on your symptoms and a physical examination of your nail and the surrounding skin.
