An ingrown toenail can also cause paronychia. Moisture allows certain germs such as Candida (a type of fungus) and bacteria to grow. Paronychia is inflammation of the nails that can result from trauma, irritation or infection. It can affect the fingernails or toenails.
Paronychia can develop when bacteria invade the damaged skin near the cuticle and nail fold and cause an infection. The cuticle is the skin at the base of the nail. The nail fold is where the skin and nail meet.
Germs (bacteria): usually cause sudden onset (acute) paronychia that is painful. A bacterium called Staphylococcus aureus, which often lives harmlessly on our skin, is the most common cause
Candida: Candida is a yeast (a type of fungus) and another common cause. Candida paronychia usually develops slowly and causes a persistent (chronic) infection. They do not lead to the appearance of pus.
Other germs (microbes): These include viruses and other fungi. They are less often the cause.
