Not sure what is an ingrown nail? An ingrown nail is the result of a nail growing into the skin that surrounds it. This often occurs at either edge of the big toe.

Symptoms of Ingrown Nails
Ingrown nails may cause pain at the tip of the toe or all the way to the base of the toe. The pain is often worse while walking. An ingrown nail may also lead to infection, inflammation or a more serious condition. If it's infected, you may see pus or redness.
