Ingrown toenails are common and occur when the edge of your toenail pushes into your skin, causing soreness and discomfort. Ingrown toenails are often accompanied by swelling and redness of the toe. If left untreated, an ingrown toenail can cause significant pain and even infection. There are many causes of ingrown toenails – including poorly constructed or ill-fitting shoes – and it is very common to have ingrown toenails without knowing the exact cause.
Injury from the Impact of a Heavy Object
We offer quick and easy relief from ingrown toenails, including permanent surgical correction. This treatment involves numbing the toe and removing a small portion of the nail edge and, often, a chemical is applied to the nail root so that the correction is permanent. You can usually resume your normal activities the day after the procedure.
If you are experiencing pain in your toe, we can help. Please contact our office to schedule an appointment.
