Ingrown Toe Nails

Ingrown toenails are a common condition in which the corner or side of a toenail grows into the skin. The result is pain, redness, swelling and, sometimes, an infection. Ingrown toenails usually affect your big toe, but can also affect other toes as well.

Often you can take care of ingrown toenails on your own by soaking the toe in warm, soapy water with Epsom salts and carefully trim nail. If the pain is severe or infection and swelling is spreading, your doctor would take steps to relieve your discomfort and help you avoid complications of ingrown toenails. Never try to treat infection on your own! As bone in the toe is just under the nail and infection can cause bone being affected and potentially can lead to toe partial of full amputation.

If you have diabetes or another condition that causes poor blood flow to your feet, easier set of infection and you’re at greater risk of complications of ingrown toenails. So please call our office today if you are experiencing this conditions, see our ingrown toenail doctor and get proper treatment.
