An ingrown toenail can be one of the most painful foot conditions; the condition is very common in both men and women. Your big toe is most likely to be affected.
The condition causes the edges of a toenail to pierce into the adjoining skin. Ingrown toenails can cause swelling and redness and could require medical assistance.
At Advanced Footcare, our practitioners can help start prompt treatment.
At the initial stage, our podiatrist may lift the nail by placing cotton or splint right under it; this should successfully separate the nail from the adjoining skin.
However, if the problem is more advanced, our practitioners may recommend partial removal of the nail by administering an anaesthetic.
If you have an ingrown toenail that is worsening, we recommend you seek the advice of a podiatrist.
