In this short video, I want to share what you can do for an ingrown toenail. An ingrown toenail is a situation where the edges or corners of your nail grow into your skin.
Causes of an ingrown toenail:
1. Low calcium
2. Low vitamin D
3. You’re cutting your nail incorrectly (cut your nail straight across and do not round the edges)
4. Your shoes are the wrong size, and they are pressing onto your nail
5. A toenail injury (potentially from soccer, kickboxing, or a direct injury to the toe)
