Ingrown Nail

Ingrown toenails are a common foot problem for people of all ages and are usually the result of excessive pronation, tight shoes, improperly trimmed toenails, or injury to the toenail area. The painful, irritated ingrown nail often becomes inflamed and/or infected and treatment by a podiatrist is necessary. Temporary relief can be obtained by soaking the foot in warm water with Epsom salts. The doctor will remove the nail or a portion of the nail and destroy the nail root so it will not grow back. The procedure is done in the office and is relatively painless. Normal physical activities can generally resume the following day.

Foot Tip:

Never wear shoes that are too tight. Wear custom orthotics if you have flatfeet. Do not invade the nail bed by trimming too short or too deep into the margins.
