What are ingrown toenail symptoms?

Perhaps you cut your toenail too short last week, or maybe you stubbed your big toe on the coffee table while making a trip to the kitchen for a midnight snack. Either way, if you’re suspecting foul play and are familiar with the game Clue, we're claiming self-inflicted ingrown nail, with the toenail clippers, in the bathroom, for the win!

If the area around your toenail is red, throbbing, and warm to the touch, you most likely have an ingrown nail. Other ingrown toenail symptoms include tenderness and swelling. It might hurt to place pressure on the toe and you may experience some pus. How did this happen? Well, besides, trimming too short and injury, other common causes for your current state of discomfort could be the inheritance of naturally curved nails or wearing shoes that crowd the toes.

No matter the reason, left untreated, even a minor issue like this can turn into something major. If after a week your nail has not worked its way out of your skin, contact Dr. Michael Stein and Zeindelin Ahmad, DPM of Foot Doctor of the East Bay in California. Call our office at (510) 483-3390, or schedule your appointment online today!
