INGROWN TOENAILS

Is when your toenails grow into the skin. They can get inflamed and infected. Ingrown
toenails have many different causes including: nail shape, picking at the toenails,
cutting them too short, tight footwear or hosiery, trauma (such as stubbing the toe,
or sports injuries). Ingrown toenails require expert attention by a podiatrist. They
can use specialised instruments to treat the problem; but also investigate possible
causes, and therefore prevention. Treatment ranges from conservative treatment such
as clearing the area, to nail surgery to remove the offending part of the nail. This
can be carried out by a podiatrist in the clinic, but will not be done without a
thorough assessment.
