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 off 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 the clinic.
