What Is an Ingrown Toenail?

An ingrown toenail is a very common and painful condition of the toe. The big toenail is most commonly affected but, any of the toenails can be involved. It is more common in adults however; it can be seen in infants, children, and teenagers. It occurs when the nail grows in and buries itself in the skin at the end or side of the toe. And is associated with pain and inflammation at the site where the nail sticks into the skin.

If left untreated the ingrown nail can progress into an infection or abscess that may require a surgical procedure to treat the nail and the toe.
