- Ingrown Nail
- E:environmental/poor trimming
Nail grows inward, instead of outward, and could lead to infection if not removed promptly. Refer client to physician to remove effected skin if nail is deeply embedded, or cutting into the skin; caused by tight footwear or toenails that are too deeply filed on the sides.
thoroughly soften skin, trim nail STRAIGHT across; if infection is present, provide no services and refer to doctor.
