INGROWN TOENAIL TREATMENT

WHAT ARE INGROWN TOENAILS?

Ingrown toenails occur when the edges or corners of your nails grow into the skin next to the nail. Your big toe is most likely to get an ingrown toenail. People with curved or thick nails are most susceptible, although anyone can suffer from ingrown nails as a result of an injury, poorly fitting shoes, or improper grooming of the feet. People with diabetes, vascular problems, or numbness in the toes need to be aggressive in treating and preventing ingrown toenails because they can lead to serious complications, including the risk of losing a limb.

A damaged or improperly trimmed nail can become ingrown, burrowing into the skin at the side of the nail. The site can become painful and infected, and may not heal until the nail is removed. To avoid ingrown nails, always trim nails straight across.

INGROWN TOENAILS TREATMENT OPTIONS

  • Trimming of nail (cut toenails straight across)
  • Soaking your foot in warm water with Epsom salt.
  • Antibiotics for infected ingrown nails

We strongly recommend you seek medical care if you are immunocompromised or have diabetes mellitus and / or poor circulation. Home treatment is strongly discouraged.

SURGICAL INGROWN TOENAIL TREATMENT IN LA

A foot and ankle specialist will select the treatment that is best suited for you. Most of the time a minor surgical procedure, often performed in the office, will ease the pain and remove the offending nail, acid may be applied to the nail root to prevent ingrown nail recurrence. If this procedure fails a more invasive procedure may be indicated, where the surgeon will remove the nail root surgically.
We encourage you to consult with a foot and ankle specialist for a complete assessment of your condition.
