Ingrowing toenail
I've had an in growing toenail before and have gotten it fixed too. I've started noticing the same thing is happening again. Can I do something to ensure it doesn't go to that state again? It's is the third finger on the photo that is developing this problem.

Hello Dear, Unfortunately there ks no preventive measures that you can take for ingrown toenails. The best that you can do is avoid dirt entering into the nail and keeping it dry.
