Ingrowing Toenail

Ingrowing Toenail

Ingrown toenails can be a painful and bothersome condition, but at The Arch Foot Clinic, we're here to help you understand the symptoms and provide effective treatment options to relieve your discomfort.

Common Signs and Symptoms of Ingrown Toenails:

  • Pain and Tenderness: You may experience pain and tenderness along the edge of the affected nail.
  • Redness and Swelling: Ingrown toenails can lead to redness and swelling around the nail area.
  • Infection Signs: If the ingrown toenail becomes infected, you might notice the presence of pus or drainage.
  • Shoe Discomfort: Difficulty wearing shoes comfortably is another common complaint.

Our Treatment Approach:

1. Conservative Care: When ingrown toenails are caught early, our chiropody treatment includes gentle and pain-free clearing of the ingrown nail edge. This procedure is part of our standard care and helps alleviate discomfort.

2. Surgical Removal: In cases where ingrown toenails persist or recur, we may recommend a surgical option to permanently remove the affected portion of the nail. We understand that this procedure may raise questions or concerns, and we are committed to providing a thorough explanation during your appointment to ensure your comfort and confidence in the treatment plan.

At The Arch Foot Clinic, we prioritise your comfort and the health of your feet. If you're dealing with ingrown toenail issues, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with us. Our personalised care and treatment options are designed to help you find relief and maintain optimal foot health.
