Do you have a painful toenail?

This is a condition where a part of the nail has penetrated the skin & causes inflammation in the surrounding tissues.


The toe is often very painful and becomes red & swollen.


Any toenail may become affected, but more commonly appears on the big toe.


Ingrowing toenails occur more frequently in teenage boys.

What can cause an ingrowing toenail?

   • Tight fitting shoes

   • Shoes that allow pressure on the nail, causing

     it to grow abnormally

   • Poor nail cutting etc.

   • Excessive sweating

   • Foot injuries

You should not suffer with ingrowing toenails!
