Can ingrown nails occur because of cutting my nails?

Everyone has to trim their toenails, but how you cut them does make a difference. Ingrown toenails can result when the nails aren’t cared for properly. Many people like a rounded shape, but it’s best to use clippers to cut straight across the toenail. Follow-up with a nail file to gently remove sharp corners. Request this same treatment when visiting your favorite nail salon.

Another tip for maintaining pain-free toenails—keep them at the right length. Pressure on a nail that is cut too short can cause it to push into the skin as it grows. There are other preventative steps that can be taken to avoid this painful nail condition. Make sure that your shoes fit well. Footwear that is too small, or that has a narrow toe box, can irritate the skin around the nail.
