For the past 5 years or so I've had ingrown toenails in both big toes. I've had surgery at least 3 times and within a month they come back. My sister has the same problem and so did my father when he was young but his went away after one surgery- my sister has had the procedure done even more times than I have. My cousin also has this problem. She even had the root removed and somehow she still gets them.
I don't wear tight shoes/socks, I always get the next size up, and soaking them doesn't do anything either. I'm so tired of hitting my toes on things and being in excruciating pain, or not being able to wear pretty sandals in the summer because of my ugly toes I just want my feet to be normal again, I'm desperate for ideas.View Thread
