Ingrown Nails


What are Ingrown Toenails?

This painful condition results when the nail grows into the skin. If not treated it will become infected

Causes:

Improper nail trimming, fungal nails and/or other nail growth abnormalities

Treatments:

If the nail has simply been cut incorrectly, the podiatrist can remove the infected portion (also known as Paronychia). For a recurring problem, the corner of the nail-or, in some cases, the entire nail-may be removed. A normal nail will grow in. Fungus nails have oral and topical treatments available
