Ingrown nails can be caused by incorrect nail cutting or an inherited trait that causes the nail to curve and grow into the skin. Not only is it painful, but it can also result in infection. Unfortunately, the most common treatments for ingrown nails do not correct the shape of the nail and the problem nearly always reoccurs. Painful ingrown nails usually do not get better by themselves.
