ingrown toenail

Whats going on with my toe?

Ingrown toenails, medically described as onychocryptosis, is a fairly frequent complaint. This condition occurs when the sides of the nail grow into the surrounding skineither due to a mismatch in the size of the nail and the size of the nail bed (the nail is too big for its bed), or due to poor trimming/clipping practices, saysChris G. Adigun, MD, board-certified dermatologist and nail specialist at Dermatology & Laser Center of Chapel Hill. When the nail grows and pierces the skin, it causes an inflammatory response leading to redness, swelling, and pain, she says, noting that an ingrown toenail most commonly occurs on the big toe.
