Ingrown Toenail Podiatry Treatment
What is an Ingrown toenail?
An Ingrown toenail is caused by the pressure from the ingrowth of the nail edges/corners into the skin of the toe. The main causes of ingrown toenails include improper toe nail cutting, inherited involuted shape of the nail, improper shoes, physical trauma caused by aggressive pedicures or nail picking.
How to treat an Ingrown Toenail?
Conservative treatment involves removing the nail spike and wearing proper shoes.
Our primary goal is to manage the condition conservatively but sometimes, surgical intervention is needed to provide relief to the patient. The procedure involves removing partial or full nail and using a chemical to prevent the nail from growing back. Please call our clinic for a consultation.
