Ingrowing Toe nails

Ingrowing toe nails occur when the sides of the nail grown into the skin or there is a build up of hard skin in the sulcis of the nail. Ingrowing toe nails can be very painful commonly affect the big toe nail. Active, sporty people are particularly prone to ingrowing toe nails because they sweat more.

We can cut back the nail to relieve the pressure. If the nail is infected you may need antibiotics. In some cases, it may be necessary to surgically remove part of the nail using a local anesthetic. You can help prevent this condition by not cutting the nails too short and avoiding wearing narrow-toed shoes.
