Ingrown Toenail

My right toe hurts, and went to see GP. The doctor asked me to remove my shoes and socks, and diagnosed instantly by just glancing it.

 "It's ingrown toenail."He said in his Scottish accent.

"England Toenail?" I asked, and was not at all surprised by the 'curious' name. Because I have been blaming England's cold winter for my painful toe. I suspect that cold, wet and lack of sunshine causes 'rheumatism'. Because of my own painful toenail, I often see other people limping in same way. So I thought this kind of toenail has got such curious 'nickname' by it's geographical disease characteristics as athletes foot, or tennis elbow by their professional features.

"No, no! In Grown Toe Nail. I show you."the doctor spell out the disease name syllable by syllable,  then turned to his computer and typed the word into Google search, many scary images shew up on the screen.

The treatment is to cut the ingrown nail. He gave a telephone number of another medical centre, asked me to make an appointment for the surgery.

I wonder what causes my toenail grow into the skin, does not my gene control my toe growing properly in the right direction? is my gene system confused and in chaos?
