About the treatment

Ingrown toenail management is carried out by our registered Podiatrist, to help you achieve pain relief, clear up an infection, and prevent future ingrown toenails.

 

Nail Surgery isn't always necessary, if your ingrown toenail isn’t too severe, it can be profiled.

 

A nail surgery can be booked and local anesthetic can be administered if your toe is too painful. To book this Schedule an appointment 'Surgery Assessment' online or call 010303272404.

 

What is an Ingrown Toenail?

An ingrown toenail affects the large toe in most cases but can also affect the other toes. An ingrown toenail occurs when a sliver of nail pierces the flesh at the side of the nail. The condition can be extremely painful and occasionally the toe can become infected. If an infection is present, the toe will become very inflamed and can produce excudate.

What causes ingrown toenails?

Toenails come in all shapes and sizes. Often the nail can be wide and appear fan shaped. Rather than the nail growing straight it may grow into the flesh resulting in an ingrown toenail.

Many of us also cut our toenails incorrectly. The nails should be trimmed straight across but we do tend to curve the nails at the edges. We also cut the nails too short. This can encourage the nail to grow into the nail bed.

Our footwear choices can also lead to ingrown toenails. Tight shoes and socks can push the nail into the flesh and can cause the nail to become ingrown.

We do find that the most common cause of an ingrown toenail is incorrectly trimming toenails. If you do have problems trimming your toenails a Podiatrist can help.
