My Toenail Hurts

Comments (1)

Oh my aching toenails! Is this you? Are your toenail painful all the time? Or are they just painful in your shoes? Maybe just in certain types of shoes? Painful toenails can be caused by a myriad of different reasons, but here are the top 5.

1. Ingrown toenails
2. Infected toenails
3. Thick toenails from chronic trauma (onychochauxis)
4. Blood underneath your toenail (subungual hematoma)
5. Or the most common: Fungal infection (onychomycosis)

If your toenails are painful, take a close look. Are they red? Thick? Pinching your skin? Do they have fluid under them or drainig from a corner? Are they yellow, thickened and chalky? If you have any changes to your toenail, you need a podiatrist to sort it out.

Normal looking toenails, but still painful? It is usually the shoes! Too tight and usually too narrow!

Painful toanails can give you a really bad day! Call us and let us take a look!

Prevent this painful toenails by maintaining good foot hygiene. Make sure that your feet are thoroughly dry before putting on your shoes, and never borrow other people's socks or shoes. Regularly change your socks and wash them as often.
