Issue: How do I prevent ingrown toenails?
Solution: Don’t pull hosiery tightly across toes. Instead, leave at least ¼" of room at the front of the toes so that the toes can wiggle easily and are not bent after pulling on tights, socks or leg wear. It’s also a good idea to pull hosiery away from toes before putting on shoes. You never want to interfere with the normal toe-grip action that is necessary to take a step and to walk well. There should always be at least a ¼" of extra length of sock at the end of toes – as your toes will naturally pull socks tighter just by walking.
