Of course, athletes or people who are on their feet all day are likely to get foot problems. But plenty of foot-related concerns can affect anyone, even if they aren’t particularly hard on their feet. One of the most common of these problems is an ingrown toenail.

- What Is an Ingrown Toenail?
An ingrown toenail occurs when a corner of the toenail begins to dig or grow into the flesh of the toe. The first sign of an ingrown toenail is pain and inflammation at the site, though extra tissue may start to grow and a yellow fluid may drain from the infected site if it is not properly treated.
