Suffering with an Ingrown Toenail? Andrea shares how we can help!!
Today I want to talk to you about Ingrown Toenails specifically and how we as podiatrists can help you deal with that.
What is Ingrown Toenail?
An Ingrown Toenail condition in which the corner or side of a toenail grows into the flesh.
What Causes an Ingrown Toenail?
Ingrown Toenails starts simply by people cutting their toenails incorrectly like picking or pulling their nails off.
What happens is if you cut your nail a little bit too short or you leave an irregular edge what actually happens is as they now regrow and the skin wraps around the nail you’ll get that spike or edge of the nail actually breaking the skin and growing into the skin.
Is Ingrown toenail painful?
Anybody who’s had one of these knows how absolutely incredibly painful they can be.
Something so small can stop people from wearing shoes, doing the sports and activities they want to do.
