Your not the only person this happened too. I had multiple ingrown toe nails while I was on tane. So did a friend of mine. I think it is because you don't heal normally while taking accutane why they are reoccurring. The first one may have been a fluke and have nothing to do with accutane. But I do believe they come back because we just don't heal the same while taking accutane. I had mine removed by a podiatrist and the thing still came back..

After your accutane finished did you still get them?

Yeah, getting the nail removed is very painful too! I hope the pain goes away soon and hopefully with your accutane course coming to a end the ingrowns will stop too! Best of luck!
