2. Change your Shoes
Sometimes an ingrown toenail occurs due to an incorrect shoe type. Some shoes such as heels, wedges, and sandals have been known to be culprits of ingrown toenails. This is why a treatment for an ingrown toenail involves changing your shoe style. Consider finding a type of shoe that does not allow your shoe to press into the toes (mainly the big toe). You should look for a comfortable shoe such as walking shoes or properly fitting heels, hiking shoes, and dress shoes. There are shoe stores that will help to fit your shoe to your foot so that you do not have this problem and you can always check with your podiatrist to assist you.
