Nail care: Ingrown nail could develop due genetics or due to tight shoes, trauma, fungal toenail infections, and incorrect cutting of the nails. One should always try to cut the nails strait across to avoid leaving an embedded nail spicule. If you develop pain or redness get it looked at by a professional.
