We have all made the painful mistake of trimming our nails too short at some point in our lives. Sometimes, this can really affect our foot health by causing ingrown toenails.

This happens when the nail grows downward into the skin instead of straight out, usually causing an infection. Ingrown toenails are most common on the sides of the big toe. It can also be caused by shoe pressure, injury, fungal infections, poor foot structure, etc.

Ingrown toe nails can be very painful and can lead to an infection. For more information on ingrown toenails or to schedule an appointment, please don’t hesitate to contact us today at (718) 550-3535!
