ingrown toenails.

i have ingrown toenails and i find it gross. They aren't normal-looking.

It sometimes hurts too. Like, inside the skin the nail stabbs it and it hurts.



How do I make them normal, if possible?

best thing you can do is try and prevent them



don't cut your nails too close on the outer corners so they have a less chance of growing out under your skin on the sides



other than that if they're already down in there you can try to cut the nail as close as possible to try and get it out but no guarentee you may just have to let it grow out

the ownly thing i know you can really do is dont cut them too close to the outter corrners of your toenails. if you dont want people to see your nain toenails then wear nailpolish and if you dont want people to see your toenails at all then wear tennis shoes or any shoe that isnt open toed. hope that helped!!!!!! if you have anymore questions let me know!!!!!!!!

TREATMENT AND PREVENTION. :]



ingrown toenails should be treated as soon as they are recognized. in many cases, people with uninfected ingrown toenails can obtain relief with the following simple regimne:

1- soak the feet in warm salt water,

2- dry them thoroughly with a clean towel,

3- apply a mild antiseptic solution to the area,

4- bandage the toe.



if excessive inflammation, swelling, pain or discharge is present, the toenail probably is infected and should be treated by a physician. a podiatrist can trim or remove the infected nail with a minor in-office surgical procedure. he or she can remove the offending portion of the nail or overgrown skin with a scalpel and treat the infection. unless, the problem is congenital, the best way to prevent ingrown toenails is to protect the feet from trauma and wear shoes with adequate room for the toes.



cutting toe nails properly goes a long way toward the prevention of ingrown toenails. using a safety nail clipper, cut the nails straight across, so that the nail corner is visible. if you cut the nail too short, you are inviting the nail corner to grow into the skin. it is the natural tendency, when the edge of the nail starts to grow in, to cut down at an angle at the nail edge, to relieve the pain. this does relieve the pain temporarily, but it also can start a downward spiral, training the nail to become more and more ingrown. :]

best way is without even goin to a doc or anything just cut out a little bit in your nail in the middle so the ingrowen can be pushed to the middle more :) this works to trust me i do it all the time
