you could have other issues going on besides ingrown toenails. it could be gout which is a form of arthritis. If its staying red and puffy it could be cellulitis. I'd suggest seeing a doctor to find out what it is.

I agree gout is really common in IBD.

You might consider getting checked for ingrown toenails. I've had them numerous times and was referred to a podiatrist. I no longer have a nail on my left great toe. It's ugly, but I'm no longer dealing with pain and infections. I am kind of vain, so during sandal season, I put a press on nail on that toe an it's remaining little stump.

If you're willing to post a picture, I'd be happy to show it to someone who might know what it is.

Or go to your doctor. Either way
