Ingrown Toe Nail
An ingrown toenail is a painful condition that usually occurs when the side of the toenails start to grow in the surrounding skin tissues. It results in bleeding, infection, redness, swelling, tenderness, and inflammation, because the toenail grows on the soft tissues or in the flesh surrounding the toenail, or when the nail curls and pierces the skin.
Fungal nail infection worsens this condition and makes the toenail to widen and thicken. Dr. Niti Gaur, one of the Best Dermatologists in Gurgaon says - if not provided with proper medical care can cause severe pain and infection. A dermatologist can help to avoid the complications caused by ingrown toenails.
People with diabetes and other severe health conditions can have a complication in their blood flow around their feet. Diabetes can affect toenail healing capacity; in such a case or condition, the patient must seek early medical assistance. Diabetic people are also at a higher risk to develop or suffer from ingrown toenails.
