Ways to prevent an ingrown toenail from happening?
Sometimes you can't actually prevent them. Some people have toenails that just grow the wrong way. but if that's not the case, don't cut your toenails too short with sharp edges.
The best idea is to go get surgery. I have had no problems after the surgery and its very minor surgery... ;)
Cutting your toenails too short can cause ingrown toenails, be careful when you're cutting your nails.
