Abnormal toenail growth?

When I was very little I had what I now think was an ingrown toenail that turned into an infection. The toenail eventually fell off but the new nail ended up growing out incorrectly. The nail grows diagonally from the bottom right corner of my toe and up towards the left corner- very sideways. Do anyone think there is anything I can do to make my nail grow correctly? Maybe get a podiatrist to remove it and let it grow again?

Re: Abnormal toenail growth?

You could try that. Have you been to a nail salon to see if a fake nail or acrylic would work? When I had an ingrown one cut out down the side it grew out funky till it grew out all the way. In the meantime, I had acrylic put on it...
