WALK ON AIR
Does this look familiar? An Ingrowing toenail is when the nail digs into the skin around it. It can be extremely painful and can even become infected. They can stop you from enjoying your favourite activities or even prevent you from doing everyday tasks. Maybe you have been to your GP and given antibiotics or even put on long waiting list for NHS podiatry care. Do not fear – ingrowing toenails are our specialty and we can get you feeling better and even provide a permeant cure without the need for antibiotics.
will it get better?
YES!! You don’t have to put up with them, lets fix your ingrowing toenail.
Firstly, depending on the severity of your nail, we can use nippers or a scalpel blade to remove the nail that is digging into the corners. Sometimes this is enough to relieve the pressure and the nail grows normally after this.
Other times this is not enough or it is simply too sore and infected to get a pair of nippers near it. In this case we would offer nail surgery. This is a permeant cure where remove part of the nail or the whole nail under local anaesthetic and use a chemical to stop it coming back. Read more about this procedure in our articles below .
