Ingrown Toenail Treatments
Ingrown toenails are a common complaint we see in both children and adults. There are a variety of treatments available depending on the cause of the pain and/or inflammation. Often there is a spike of nail that has pierced through the skin the requires removal before healing will begin. We are very experienced in doing this, and although it sound terrifyingly painful, if removed in the correct way is relatively pain free.
Other causes can be from picking at toenails or surrounding skin causing inflammation, or a very curved nail shape that causes pressure on the nail edges.
Normally for once off occurrences, after the case has been addressed the problem will not occur again.
For reoccurring ingrown toenails, nail surgery may be recommended as a long-term solution.
