Abstract

Pharmacists field numerous questions about foot care issues in a typical month. One of the more common is ingrown toenail, also known as onychocryptosis, a term indicating that the nail is “only covered by lateral nail wall tissue.”1 Another term, unguis incarnatus, refers to the view that an abnormality of the nail plate is responsible for the condition.
