    What are the symptoms for an ingrown toenail?

    How can someone know if they have an ingrown toenail, and can it be treated?

    Pain and pus, usually on one side (the ingrown side) of the nail, and it will persist until  the ingrown portion is removed (usually by your doctor in his office, so the area can be treated following the removal.)

    It will feel like it's digging in to your skin on one side or an other. See a dermatologist.

    Pink, puffy, smooth, hot, swollen skin; can't walk easily; very painful.  I treat mine myself but can't recommend that.  I pry them out with a sharp implement, then cut the nail.  If you're unsure, which it sounds like you are, go to the doctor.

    ya they are easy to treat, you just have to make a path for the nail to grow out of. some people do this themselves with a razor, some go to the doctor. your call.

    if your shoes feel too tight that is the first sign.

    Ingrown toenails will be painful.  However, they are not always swollen and red or infected.  If you catch them before they become infected, see a podiatrist.  After they become infected, you likely will have to have part or all of the toenail removed.

    It can be treated, and its a surprise to hear someone wonder if they have one. They are painful when your wearing shoes as the edge of your toe gets compressed against the side of the shoe.

    have a read of this. http://paigehchen.hubpages.com/hub/Trea … rown-Nails
