What is Nail treatment?

An Ingrown nail is a nail that has grown into the skin instead of over it. This usually happens to the big nail, but it can also happen to other nails. An ingrown nail can get infected. It may be painful, red, and swollen, and it may drain pus. Anyone can get an ingrown nail, but adults get them more than children do. People who have curved or thick nails are more likely to get an ingrown nail. This is more common in older adults.

Ingrown nails don’t just happen to your toes. Your fingernails can also become ingrown. They occur less frequently in fingers because you’re not squeezing your fingers into shoes that don’t fit well. Also, the shape of your fingernails makes it less likely that they will become ingrown.
Ingrown nails actually have two medical names:
  • Onychocryptosis and
  • Unguis incarnatus. 
However, ingrown fingernails do happen and they can become infected. This makes everyday tasks such as typing on a keyboard or doing the dishes painful.
Cause of Nail Ingrowth
An ingrown nail can have a number of different causes. Cutting your nail too short or rounding the edge of the nail can cause it to grow into the skin. Wearing shoes or socks that don't fit well can also cause an ingrown nail. If your shoes are too tight, they might press the nail into the toe and cause it to grow into the skin.

You can get an ingrown nail if you hurt your toe, such as stubbing it. This can cause the nail to grow inward. Repeating an activity that injuries the nail, such as kicking a soccer ball, can also cause an ingrown nail. The main symptom of an ingrown nail is the pain from the nail growing into the skin instead of over it. If the ingrown nail gets infected, it might be swollen or red, and it might drain pus. The area around the ingrown toenail is often painful.
Nail Treatment Summary
Take a close look at your fingernails. Are they strong and healthy looking? Or do you see ridges, dents, areas of unusual colour or shape? These might indicate an underlying condition that needs attention.

Your fingernails — composed of laminated layers of a protein called keratin — grow from the area at the base of the nail under your cuticle. Healthy fingernails are smooth, without pits or grooves. They're uniform in colour and consistency and free of spots or discoloration.

Not all nail conditions are normal, however. Consult your doctor or dermatologist if you notice:
  • Changes in nail colour, such as discoloration of the entire nail or a dark streak under the nail
  • Changes in nail shape, such as curled nails
  • Thinning or thickening of the nails
  • Separation of the nail from the surrounding skin
  • Bleeding around the nails
  • Swelling or pain around the nails
