Foot Health: 3 Signs That an Ingrown Nail May Be Infected!

Tight shoes can cause blisters, corns and calluses, blisters on the back of the heels or worse, ingrown nails, which can become infected. The American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS) says signs of infection from ingrown nails include:

  • pain
  • redness 
  • fluid draining from the area

If you notice any of these symptoms, schedule an appointment with a foot and ankle surgeon who can perform a simple, safe in-office procedure to remove the nail.
