For many people, the nail shape that tends to get ingrown is inherited – it is simply genetic. It can also be caused by trauma, such as stubbing your toe, or repetitive pressure such as running or playing soccer. Toenail fungus infections are another cause. Ingrown toenails are also often caused by incorrect trimming, such as cutting your nails too short. Wearing shoes or socks that are too tight or short can also contribute to ingrown toenails.
