2-20. INGROWN TOENAIL
An ingrown toenail (figure 2-11) curves inward with no free spaces at the
margins. The sides of the toenail cut into the skin around the nail causing that area to
become very sensitive to pressure. The side of a shoe pressing against the area is
painful. What has happened is that the soft tissue of the big toe, for example, is
reacting to the ingrown nail as if the nail were a foreign body.
