Ingrown Toenails

An ingrown toenail is a common and often painful condition that occurs when the edge of a toenail grows into the surrounding skin. This can lead to discomfort, redness, swelling, and even infection if left untreated. Ingrown toenails most frequently affect the big toes, but they can occur in any toenail.

Ingrown toenails can result from various factors, including improper nail trimming, wearing ill-fitting shoes, injury, or genetic predisposition. The condition can be particularly bothersome and interfere with daily activities, making walking and wearing shoes uncomfortable.

Our experienced podiatrists are well-versed in diagnosing and treating ingrown toenails effectively. We offer a range of treatment options tailored to your specific condition, including gentle removal of the ingrown portion of the nail, antibiotics to address infection if present, and advice on proper nail care to prevent recurrence. In some cases, a minor surgical procedure may be recommended to permanently remove the ingrown portion of the nail.

If you are experiencing the discomfort and pain of an ingrown toenail or suspect you have one, don't hesitate to contact our podiatry team for a consultation. Timely intervention can help alleviate pain, prevent complications, and promote healing. We are dedicated to helping you achieve relief from ingrown toenail symptoms, regain your comfort, and maintain optimal foot health.
