Ingrown Toenails

 

Ingrown toenails are a commonly treated condition in podiatry practice. Typically, ingrown toenails occur when a piece of nail digs into the skin at the end or side of the toe. This can cause pain, redness, swelling and infection to the area.

 

Causes:

  • Incorrect cutting technique 

  • Picking at nails

  • Poorly fitted shoes

  • Irregular shape (involuted) 

  • Trauma 

 

How we can help (treatments): 

  • Removing the sharp bit of the nail from the skin, usually with little to no pain

  • If the ingrown toenail is an ongoing/reoccurring issue, a partial nail avulsion may be performed where part of the nail is removed and killed at the root so it does not grows back.
