    Have you ever had an ingrown toenail? Seventy percent of participants in our Instagram poll said yes, so my sympathies. If no, lucky you—congratulations on never having to experience that peculiar brand of pain.
    This week I’m talking about how to make sure you don’t cut your toenails in a way that might lead to an ingrown nail, as well as how to treat one.

    That's something I did know, but it does leave sharp corners. I
    don't taper the nail, just file the corners.

    The article image shows a clipper with a concave curvature. Half my clippers are straight non-curvature. I also like my easy to use, curvy, hand-held nail cutter, but making sure the nail is cut straight. https://www.aliexpress.us/item/22518...andl_shipto=US. similar example.
    But no matter what, the contortions I have to go through to cutting my toe nails (straight) are somewhat strenuous, but so far, so good. I guess someday I may have to rely on a medical manicurist when I get too and feeble??? Either that or do like Howard Hughes and just let 'em grow.
    Sometimes, when necessary, I take advantage of my toe nail cutting event and soak my feet in warm water so as to soften the barnacles around the outer edge of the feet in order to make rasping much softer and easier.

    If one does not wear shoes, no need to cut the toenails. Your mileage may vary.

    Really? That may apply to horses but I don't know how that works for humans. Just ask "unshod" "Aaltrude" lol! https://www.hawkeshealth.net/communi...ght=horse+shod
