Along with ingrown toenails, fungal nail infections are extremely common. Although infections can also affect the hands, people are much more likely to develop a fungal nail infection on their toes.
Ingrown toenails are one of the most common causes of foot pain. Almost everyone will experience ingrown toenail pain at some stage in their life.
Unfortunately, ulcers on a foot are all too easy to ignore. After all, just about any mundane activity can cause an ulcer. Perhaps you walked a little longer than usual on a particular day. Perhaps you bought a new pair of shoes. And just like that, a small blister appears on your skin. A blister can quickly develop into a cut and eventually into an ulcer.
