If you are having a problem with a toenail, you are not alone; this is one of the most common foot problems that is treated at our office. When a patient has an ingrown toenail, it means that the nail plate is simply too large for the bed of the nail, and one or both sides of the nail plate are pressing into the skin. Ingrown toenails can be caused by several different reasons, including improperly cutting your toenails, having an abnormal nail structure, or even localized injury to the nail.
