Question:

I keep getting very painful ingrown toenails and both sides of my big toes.I cut them straight across,wear shoes that properly fit.What more can I do ?These are so painful and its been going on for almost a year now.

Answer:

It is difficult to know why your nails have changed.  I would suggest that you see a board certified podiatrist.  As you know, they are specialists in diseases of the feet and nails.  They can examine you carefully and provide the necessary corrected measures.
