    Default Toes

    Hey guys,

    I doubt any of you know anything about this but I was wondering about something. I had to have surgery on both of my big toes since the toenails were ingrown. Do you guys think this is likely to impact on my son as well - he seems to have similarly shaped feet - or do u think this is just a fluke and it won't impact him? It impact any of you?

    I think you should've had your son's toes surgically removed at birth.

    I've had to have the sides of my nail removed twice on the same toe.

    The reason it happens is because people used 'finger-nail' clippers with the concaved (rounded-in) end instead of the 'toe-nail' clippers which have a convexed (rounded-out) end. Or even worse, people (eww) pick their toe nails by (ewwww) tearing at them....(EWWW!!)

    Toe nails grow in the path of least resistance...sort of like flowing water.

    If the nail is 'rounded at the sides instead of 'flat' at the top and sides, then it will push into the fleshy sides of the toe and grow in deep.

    Bottom line - use 'toe-nail' clippers and not 'finger-nail'....AND DON'T EVER PICK AT THEM!

    Let me tell you if you have 'em, your kid is more than likely to get them. It's hereditary. I've had to have both sides of each big toe operated on for ingrown toe nails at least twice. One side had to be operated on 4 times. About a year ago I had to take my son in for the same thing and he was 2 at the time. First thing out of my doc's mouth - "Like father, like son." Not kidding. My father had ingrown toe nails, I had them, and at least my first son will most likely have them in the future. The doc's best advice was to clip the top of the toe nail straight and don't round the corners or take any of the sides off.

    I've clipped them back by myself before. Painful as hell when I did it but felt 100% better aftewards. Funniest time was when my senior drill sergent at boot camp asked what the hell I was doing and he just walked away.

    Don't let them fester or you might as well sharpen the family meat cleaver.

    I have always used standard issue fingernail clippers on my toes - never have had a problem (other than getting harder to reach them these days)

    I had an ingrown toenail once. Doc had to numb the toe to cut it out. It was about as fun as taking a church group to Disneyland on gay day.

    I used to get these all the time. I developed a means by which I could perform the surgery myself. Sucks. It has everything to do with how you clip the nails, how you walk and the types of shoes you wear.

    As for your son, only one way to be sure he won't deal with it: cut his toes off now. Thw sooner the better. Besides, toes and feet are fucking gross to begin with.
