Why do my kids get ingrown toenails?

There are a number of reasons nails can become ingrown including improperly fitting shoes, injury, excessive moisture, or most commonly, improperly cutting your nails.  Routinely cutting the nails improperly, down at an angle instead of straight across, is the most common cause of ingrown nails.
