Treatment for ingrown nail - Definition


Definition


An ingrown nail is defined as one which penetrates the skin, commonly at the lateral edges. This leads to inflammation and potentially infection, which can be serious if left untreated. An ingrown nail can be painful, red, swollen, and is generally mostly seen in toenails. To avoid this condition, it is advisable to regularly cut your nails, but not too short. In cases of ingrown nail, early treatment can help avoid it progressing into infection. It is therefore recommended to submerge the affected foot in hot water for around 15 minutes, three times a day, then to insert a small piece of cotton between the skin and nail. The nail must be left in the open air as much as possible, and you should avoid putting any pressure on it, such as by wearing closed shoes.
