How can you prevent an ingrown toenail?
An ingrown toenail can be quite painful and often requires medical intervention to remedy this condition. Of course you prefer not to! Below we give you a few handy tips to prevent those ingrown toenails in the future:
- Cut your nails straight, not round. The nail should always protrude above the nail wall. It is best to use special nail scissors for this.
- Do not toddler or pluck your nails or tear them off.
- Wear well-fitting footwear that doesn’t put too much pressure on your toes.
