Ingrown toenails can form when the side of a toenail begins
to grow into the flesh surrounding the nail. As a result, the
affected toe—most commonly the big toe—may become red,
swollen, painful, and—in severe cases—infected.
There are many reasons why an ingrown toenail may develop.
Improperly cutting your toenails is a major cause of ingrown
toenails. If toenails aren’t cut straight across or are cut too
short, the likelihood of getting an ingrown toenail may increase.
Other causes include having unusually curved toenails, wearing
shoes that don’t give your toes an ample amount of space,
and hereditary factors.

“Dr. Waters and his staff were pleasant and personable. I was able to get an appointment within days of my referral and he did the necessary procedure at the same appointment as the initial consult (removal of in-grown toenail). I’d had the same thing done by a different doc, and the recovery from Dr. Waters was markedly less painful. I’m only two weeks out from the procedure, but it seems to be healing nicely and to be successful. Definitely recommend him.” - Megan S.
