How can I prevent an ingrown toenail?
There are a variety of ways you can prevent an ingrown toenail:
- Soak the nail in warm water before cutting.
- Make sure your nail trimmer is clean before you use it.
- Do not tear the nails.
- Trim toenails across the top (do not round the corners).
- Wear shoes that fit correctly (make sure they are not too loose or too tight around the toes).
