  • Ingrown toenails usually pop up on the big toe of your foot, but they can happen to any of your toes. An ingrown toenail occurs when your toenail curves and grows into the toe. Stretching before and after exercising should be an essential part of your routine, along with using pads or braces if you have a history of injuries or sprains.  If your pain is not severe, but it’s disrupting your ability to function regularly, try some at-home treatment options.
