About three weeks ago, I decided to try to repair my own ingrown toenail problem. Instead of calling a professional podiatry office and making an appointment, I attempted my own self-surgery. Unfortunately, my botched job led to a devastating infection that almost cost me my toe. Although your toenails might seem insignificant, they can cause real problems if they are trimmed incorrectly. My blog is dedicated to spreading the word about proper podiatry practices, so that you can understand the importance of meeting with a real doctor. You never know how deep a problem runs until you have things looked at by a professional.
