The ingrown nail is a very common problem that consists of one side of the nail, generally the big toenail, penetrating the skin and provoking a painful inflammation. If this issue is neglected, the skin on the side of the nail might get infected; this infection might spread to the tissues, sometimes even to the bone.
The causes of ingrown nail are numerous: the curve of the nail might be too pronounced, the nail might not have been cut properly, there might be an underlying bone-related issue, it might be hereditary, etc.
Dans chaque cas, le podiatre est en mesure de poser le diagnostic approprié afin de soigner les ongles incarnés.
In any case, the podiatrist is there to make the appropriate diagnosis.
