Ingrown toenails are a common condition where the corner of a toenail grows into the soft flesh surrounding the toe (usually the big toe). Ingrown toenails can be very uncomfortable, painful, and can easily lead to an infection in the toe. It is possible to take care of ingrown toenails on your own, but if the pain does not subside, Dr. Rosales can take steps to relieve the pain and help you avoid further complications caused by ingrown toenails.
