Be careful, what seems like nothing at first can end in a severe infection. Ingrown nail on the foot or on the hand…We take care of it without delay.
Ingrown toenail on the foot
The problem most often affects the big toe: crushed or badly cut, the side of the nail grows under the skin instead of coming out normally. It can be caused by a too short or rounded cut, tight shoes or even a shock in a piece of furniture.

Penetration of the nail into the skin can also appear on the finger. Painful and much more visible than on the toe, the ingrown nail must be treated quickly. If the problem is not treated, it can then worsen and develop a secondary infection or even the appearance of a “panaris”.
What home treatments?
To treat an ingrown nail at its beginning, we try to soften the skin in water, to clear the edge of the nail that penetrates the toe and to protect the latter while it grows back. An antiseptic is also used to neutralize the risk of infection.
When the skin softens, the nail softens and releases more easily. Then, we prevent the badly placed edge from attacking the flesh again so that it can heal, and we promote regrowth without pain. Gentleness is the key word of these treatments: above all, you must avoid “butchering” the area yourself. If the baseline pain is moderate, the injury is mild, and these simple interventions should overcome the problem.
