Painful ingrown toenails are a very common issue we see as Podiatrists. They can be very painful but treating them can be surprisingly easy to manage.
To treat ingrown toenails, it may only be a matter of taking a small piece of the nail causing the problem. Then changing your footwear or taking pressure of the corner of the toe. In some cases, a Partial Nail Avulsion may need to be performed to remove a small section of the nail which is causing the problem. This is done under Local Anesthetic and can be conducted by the Podiatrist in clinic.
First step is to book an appointment with our Podiatrist to assess your ingrown toenails. Then we can suggest the best treatment plan for you.
