This painful condition is when the nail has grown into the skin at the sides of the nail. This causes the area to weep, bleed or exude pus.

It is caused by injury to the nail, (including loss of the nail through sport or injury), incorrect nail cutting, or tight fitting shoes. In many cases the shape of the toe nail may itself be the main cause.
