Often with ingrown: toenails the side of the nail needs to be removed and the nail matrix destroyed to allow a nail to grow out normally (if topical medication and cotton placed under ingrown nail edge doesn't work)

Abnormal...: This is not usual. If two other podiatrists don't know why this is happening to you, perhaps it's time to biopsy the area and make sure nothing else is going on!
