If you have pain on the side of your toe or redness on the side of your toenail, then you probably have an ingrown toenail. When the side of the toenail grows into the soft tissue of your toe, it’s called ingrown toenail. This condition causes redness, pain and infection on the affected toe, usually your big toe.
If an ingrown toenail is not treated, it can result in severe complications. Your bone and toe can become infected. Foot ulcers, open sores, and reduction of blood flow in the affected area are the other complications from an ingrown toenail. If you don’t treat an ingrown toenail, it will lead to complications, including foot ulcers, loss of blood, open sores and infection. To prevent ingrown toenail complications, seek medical help immediately.
Yes. Here are some of the ways to prevent ingrown toenails:

I’ve suffered with DVT for many years and have seen many doctors with little or no help. A year ago, my leg was so bad that I was told I might lose it. I went to Dr. Kyprios. After a few visits he had it under control. He saved my leg. My only regret is that I didn’t go to him in the first place. Not only is he highly skilled, he is very personable and caring. I can’t thank him enough. And his people are great too. If you’re in need of wound care, he’s the Doctor to see.
My family doctor referred me to Dr. Graff, a wound care specialist, to treat a serious trauma injury to my leg received in a freak accident. Dr. Graff has been treating me since the accident and I am delighted with his handling of my injury. The healing of the leg wound is progressing at a rapid rate due to his medical expertise. He is a pleasant, patient, greatly skilled and articulate practitioner who is punctual, organized and has a highly capable support staff. I am glad to have met him and can unequivocally recommend Dr. Graff for wound care.
I received a recommendation from a friend to seek out Dr. Graff’s help for my ankle. Not only was his facility and team of medical personnel professional, but they also truly listened to my concerns with patience. Customer service and placing the patient’s needs as a priority is essential to recovery. I’m grateful this facility values that as well.
