They cause mild to moderate discomfort on the sides of the big toenails.
Nothing conservative like nail trimming on the sides, will actually cure the problem.
This problems can actually go on to a toe infection and even amputation is worse case scenarios.
The best treatment is a minor procedure in the office by a qualified podiatrist to numb the toe and remove the ingrown borders permanently. Patients can get it wet the next day and athletics can resume within a few days.
Don't suffer with pain on the sides of your great toe!!
