Nail nailing - Onychomycosis //

Causes of ingrown toenails  //
  • Family Predisposition 

  • Sports and sports such as tennis, football and basketball

  • Inappropriate shoes, which are either too small or too big

  • Repetitive pressure or trauma to the foot/toe

  • Poor foot hygiene

  • Abnormal gait (increased stress on the big toe)

  • Deformities, such as calluses and hammertoes

  • Unusually long toes

  • Obesity

  • Diabetes

  • Onychomycosis

  • Arthritis

  • Bony or soft tissue tumors in the fingers

  • Excessive sweating of the feet

  • Swelling of the lower extremities

  • Wrong cut

  • Onychomycosis

  • Bad posture

  • Medicines such as acitretin

  • Arthritis  and more


At home what can be done:

The following treatments give you temporary relief:

  • Soak your sole in warm water for 15-20 minutes adding:

    • 2 tablespoons of Epsom salts per 1 liter of water

    • or 4 tablespoons of table salt per 1 liter of water.

  • Take anti-inflammatory drugs

  • Cut the nail in a straight line, without making corners and do not cut them too short/narrow/short.

  • Gently pull back/up the skin covering the nail with your finger so you can put a small piece of cotton or dental floss under the nail to lift it up off the skin.

If symptoms persist, then medical treatment by a podiatrist is recommended.

Clinical image  //

The clinical picture in Onychocryptosis depends on the stage of the disease.


So the clinical picture is as follows:




When trimming your nails you should avoid cutting the tips too much as this 'encourages' the nail to grow inwards. Instead, at least as far as the toenails are concerned, try to cut them in such a way that they are a straight line.
