This year has seen a break out in the number of ingrown toe nails seen across our clinics. Ingrows tend to be more problematic in the winter months due to heavier blankets putting pressure on the sides of the big toes as well as the amount of time spent in tight socks and closed in shoes. These factors all add to the amount of excessive pressure on the toes and pinching against the nails.
This year has been an exceptionally long and cold winter and feet have not had a time to recover from all this pressure and micro trauma. Of course, poor nail cutting, poor shoes, and genetically "different" toes all play their part to the cause, however during a long winter like this, the chance of problems is greater than most!
