Ingrown Toenail Treatment in the East BayTo say that something is the bane of your existence implies that it is annoying, harmful, and persistent. It causes ruin and is a source of exasperation. In this instance, we're referring to the painful condition that is ingrown toenails. We're here to pin down, once and for all, the secrets to slaying this dragon. Prepare yourself for this nail-biter of a post on how to prevent ingrown nails. 

Painful ingrown nails can be prevented by practicing proper nail trimming techniques and wearing properly-fitted footwear. Toenails must be trimmed with the utmost care. Don't let the slightest mishap thwart your happiness. Trim your nails with clean and dry tools. Nails should be kept no longer than the length of your toe. They should also be trimmed straight across, never trim them by following the natural, rounded curve of your toe. Once clipping is complete, store your tools in a dry, clean place.

Another way to prevent disaster is to wear shoes that provide your feet with adequate wiggle room. This is to be taken literally. Your shoes should always allow your toes room to wiggle and flex. Footwear with wide toe boxes are best if you are prone to developing ingrown nails. Any shoe that leaves your toes feeling stuffed, suffocated, or squished should be avoided all-together.

Make smart choices! Your toenails, no matter how small, play a large role in your happiness and comfort. If you'd like more information on how you can prevent ingrown nails or if you are currently struggling with this, contact Dr. Michael Stein and Zeindelin Ahmad, DPM of Foot Doctor of the East Bay today. Call one of our three offices located in San Leandro, Pleasanton, or Los Gatos, CA.
