Ways to Prevent Ingrown Toenails, Part Two
This is Doctor Mauras with you again to give residents of the Columbia Gorge one more tip on how you can prevent the painful condition that is known as an ingrown toenail.
Ingrown toenails form when nails begin to grow into their bed, usually from the sides, and start to puncture the skin. Sometimes ingrown toenails develop as a result of trauma to the foot. For instance, if you stub your toe in the middle of the night as a result of your wife rearranging the furniture, or if your foot experiences shock during a sports activity, your toenail could react negatively by thickening or curling inward. If you fear that your nail may be progressing in that direction, seek help from a podiatrist right away.
I would love for you to come see me, Doctor Mauras, here in Hood River, OR.
