Ingrown Toenails

What are Ingrown Toenails?

Ingrown toenails, also known as onychocryptosis, occur when the edge or corner of a toenail grows into the adjacent skin, rather than over it. This can lead to pain, redness, swelling, and in some cases, infection. Ingrown toenails most commonly affect the big toe, but they can occur on any toenail.
