Podiatry First Sports Helps with Ingrown Toenail

Major pain from a seemingly minor issue?

A seemingly minor issue such as an ingrown toenail can cause major pain and can severely affect every aspect of your quality of life, from exercising, working, even sleeping. 

If you’re having trouble with an ingrown toenail, there’s a few things you can try at home first:

But if that doesn’t work, and ingrown toenails are stopping you from enjoying life to the fullest, our expert podiatrists provide a range of simple treatment options, depending on your particular problem. 

In many cases, the toenail can be treated by removing just the small section of the nail, causing the problem. But if ingrown toenails are a recurring problem for you, a simple, permanent procedure can be carried out in approximately 30 minutes under local anaesthetic, which will prevent the offending nail from growing back.

Which means you can be back on your feet and living life to the fullest again, pain-free.
