Ingrown Toenails

Quality care and services for ingrown toenail removal and treatment.

Ingrown toenails are a very common occurrence however they can be painful and quite problematic for a lot of people, and can affect even basic day to day activities. Ingrown toenails occur when the nail begins to grow into the surrounding skin, causing inflammation and often lead to infections. They can occur for a range of reasons including not cutting the nail correctly, tight shoes, genetics and from injury or trauma such as a stubbed toe.

Often you will require intervention or treatment to correct an ingrown toenail, however if conservative treatment is unsuccessful, your podiatrist can perform ingrown toenail surgery, ensuring a quick recovery and immediate relief from the pain and inflammation.

Symptoms of an ingrown toenail can include pain or redness around the affected toe, swelling, formation of pus in the area and occasionally fever. If you are not sure you have an ingrown toenail, or you require treatment, our podiatrists can complete an assessment and provide the relevant treatment for you.

A podiatrist can provide specialised care for ingrown toenails, which includes:

  • Assessment and diagnosis

  • Effective intervention and treatment

  • Prevention through ongoing care

At Foot Wellbeing, we always ensure that each patient is assessed carefully and thoroughly and treatment is provided based on your individual needs. While some patients may only require minimal intervention, some may require more extensive treatment, which may include a long-term care plan to prevent the issue from recurring again over time.

We are committed to the health and wellbeing of our patients and are always available to speak with our patients, and provide detailed care plans, and answer all of your questions and address any concerns you may have.
