Do You Suffer From an Ingrown Toe Nail?
An ingrown nail can be a painful and debilitating condition. It occurs when a portion of the nail forms a jagged edge and begins to grow into the softer skin beside the nail edge. Ingrown toenails are sometimes the result of poor nail cutting technique, direct trauma to the area, running in poorly fitted footwear or they may be due to a genetic predisposition whereby the nail is a curved shape.
Common symptoms on an ingrown toe nail include:
- Swelling next to the nail
Our highly trained podiatrists use a skillful technique to gently remove the offending nail edge, providing great relief. In recurring cases, nail surgery may be required. Our podiatrists have extensive training in this field. The procedure is conducted in our clinic using local anaesthesia to ensure there is no pain. You are able to walk out from the procedure immediately after and can expect a great long term result.
