Newtown Ingrown Toenail Treatment

Permanent Solutions for Ingrown Toenails

An ingrown toenail is a condition where the corners of the nail grow at an odd angle and cut into the skin. This is a very common condition that can be caused by cutting the nail too short or an infection. It usually occurs on the big toe, but it can appear on others as well.

Symptoms of ingrown toenails include:

  • Redness around the nail
  • Swelling
  • Pain and tenderness
  • Pain when walking or wearing shoes

We can help diagnose an ingrown toenail and then decide the best course of treatment. Call our Newtown podiatrist today at (215) 392-4009.

Remedies for Ingrown Toenails

In many cases, ingrown toenails can be treated at home. Unless you have diabetes, are experiencing intense pain, or have frequently reoccurring ingrown toenails, there usually is no reason to see a doctor. You can typically treat them by soaking your feet in warm water several times a day or applying antibiotic ointment on it. You can also try to separate the nail from the skin by placing a small piece of cotton under it. You should not attempt to move the nail as this could cause further damage and increase the chance of infection.

What Happens If You Leave An Ingrown Toenail Untreated?

If an ingrown toenail is untreated, there is a chance that the area could become infected. Infection can lead to painful swelling, bad odor and pus.

Call for Ingrown Toenail Treatment Today

If it appears that the nail is infected (if the symptoms do not go away) or if you have diabetes, it recommended you see a doctor. At Bux-Mont Foot & Ankle Care Centers, we can permanently remove recurring ingrown toenails through non-invasive surgery.

If you believe you have an infected ingrown toenail, or have questions about ingrown toenail removal, call Bux-Mont Foot & Ankle Care Centers today at (215) 392-4009.
