Medical Considerations for Ingrown Toenails
People with diabetes and/or neuropathy or compromised circulation in the feet should never attempt to treat ingrown toenails or any other foot issues on their own but should see a physician for all foot issues.
Always talk to your doctor if you have soreness, pain, redness, swelling or other indications of foot problems that persist for more than a few days.
