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.
A podiatrist will try to reduce the pain and resolve the problem conservatively.
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.
