Ingrown toenails occur when part of the nail (often a sharp spike) pierces the skin and causes the toe to become red, inflamed and very painful. It is important that an ingrown toenail is attended to by a podiatrist as soon as possible to have the spike of nail removed, and to prevent the toe from becoming infected and more inflamed.

If you have a persistent ingrown toenail, a small surgical procedure can be done that provides permanent removal of the piece of nail that is growing into the skin.
