Ingrown toenail

I cut my toenail too far back, and it always grows into the tip of my toe and gets ingrown and swollen. I’ve had issues with ingrown toenails on the same toe before, but on the sides rather than the tip. Thank you.

    Hello and thank you for your question. Without seeing your toe it’s hard for me to say exactly how to address ingrown toenails at the end of the toe. I’d suggest trying to keep the nails longer as this helps to ensure the skin doesn’t get caught under the nail. There is a way to tape the skin down as well to allow the nail to grow over it. If the ingrowing occurs again I’d suggest seeing a Podiatrist in person to better address the issue. I hope this helps!
