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)
