Are ingrown toenails from cutting my nails wrong?
Most ingrown toenails are not caused from cutting the nails wrong, however. They are made worse when you try to perform your own ingrown toenail surgery. The ingrown toenail typically occurs when the toenail is too wide for the nail bed. It's simply the way you were made, nothing you can do to change it. If you notice a redness, bulging, or pain on the sides of your toenails, your best bet is to visit your Houston podiatrist to have it evaluated and properly treated.
