ingrown toenails

An ingrown toenail is one of the most common toenail problems. It is a condition in which a spike edge of the nail penetrates the skin, causing the skin to become painful, red, shiny, and tense. It occurs most frequently in the big toe. 

Initially, it causes little inconvenience, but as the nail grows out, the spike or serrated edge penetrates further into the tissues and promotes acute inflammation in the surrounding soft tissues, which often becomes infected. 

The best way to prevent complications is to treat ingrown toenails promptly. Our skilled podiatrists expertly remove ingrown toenails using precise techniques.
