An ingrown toenail is a common condition in which the corner or edge of your toenail grows into the surrounding skin. This may cause pain, redness, and swelling. Your big toe is most likely to be affected. People who have diabetes are at greater risk of complications. Ingrown toenails may be caused by improperly trimmed toenails, very curved shape of toenails, incorrectly fitting shoes or repeated trauma to the feet. They may also be inherited.
Thickened nails may be caused by injury to the nail bed or fungal infection. They can be easily and painlessly thinned down by a podiatrist.
Fungal infections are characterised by thickening, discoloration and separation of the front of the nail from the nail bed.
Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue (plantar fascia) that connects your heel bone to your toes.
