Big Toe Pain? It Could Be…

An ingrown nail.

These are extremely common and can be quite painful😣😣πŸ₯ΊπŸ₯Ί.

Many people who have a painful 😣 toe πŸ‘£ don’t know it’s coming from the nail.

Others have redness and drainage 🦠 that makes it more obvious.

Some ingrown nails even hurt 😒 when the bed πŸ› covers touch them.

The most common cause of an ingrown nail is… genetics.

Children πŸ‘ΆπŸ» are just as prone as adults πŸ§‘.

Cutting the nail too closely or having it stepped on are other common causes of an ingrown nail.

Fortunately, there is an easy solution for fast πŸ’¨ and lasting relief πŸ˜ƒ.

When someone who has suffered with this problem for many years learns of a permanent solution, their smile πŸ˜€ is priceless.

Self-treating an ingrown nail or having a nail tech at a salon πŸ’‡β€β™€οΈ try to relieve it can make it worse😩.

Self-treating is especially a no-no πŸ›‘ if you have Diabetes.

The most compelling reason to not wait to get toe πŸ‘£ pain ☹️☹️ checked, besides getting relief, is…

Avoiding the risk of infection 🦠.

If you have a painful 😣 ingrown nail, the best home 🏑 remedy is soaking it in warm water πŸ’¦ for 20 minutes per day, using an antibiotic cream🧴 or gel, and wearing a sandal πŸ‘‘ or looser fitting shoe πŸ‘ž.

The sooner you see us πŸ‘¨πŸ½β€βš•οΈ, the faster we can solve the problem permanently.

Not all toe πŸ‘£ pain πŸ˜”πŸ˜–πŸ₯Ί is from an ingrown nail, but it’s one of the most common conditions we see.
