If You Struggle With Ingrown Toe Nails, Consider a Matrixectomy

Cheers to the post that accidentally got published last weekend when I was aberrantly working off my home desktop instead of my MacBook Air! Here is the post in its completion :) ….

In 2011, I saw my Podiatrist about the aggravation of what I thought to be ingrown toe nails.  At that time, she cut them down for me and recommended I let the nail technician keep them cut down and come back if I had any more problems.

I began to notice them hurting more than usual most of last year. With my intense group fitness schedule and standing on my feet all day at work my toes had really started to hurt anytime I “dinged” them the wrong way. I finally went back to my Podiatrist and had a Matrixectomy scheduled.
