Toenail Abnormalities & Care
- To avoid complication do not cut your own toenails. Mishaps can occur when individuals with poor vision, nerve damage, and poor circulation attempt self-care.
- Otherwise toenails should be cut following the shape of your toes with skin showing at the end. Do not cut into the corners. Do not cut them short.
