Ingrown toenails can be painful, uncomfortable and can easily become infected.

Correct management and care of ingrowing toenails is very important.

Ingrowing nail issues are very common in Podiatry, Chiropody and Foot Health clinics. We deal with the following nail concerns:

  • Ingrowing toenail removal

  • Painful red and sore ingrown nails
  • Infected toenails

  • Bleeding and weeping toenails
  • Local anaesthetic if needed – additional £20

  • Free follow-up appointment if needed within a 2-week period post treatment

A typical ingrowing toenail treatment often involves resecting/removing the side part of the nail that is piercing the skin and causing pain and often infection. The inside of the nail area that you often cannot see is smoothed to prevent further trauma to the skin and flushed to remove surface bacteria and infection. The sore toe is then dressed and recommendations are discussed.

” Ingrown toenails occur when the edge of the toenail grows into the surrounding skin instead of over it. This can cause pain, swelling, redness, and even infection. Ingrown toenails can be caused by factors such as improper nail trimming, wearing tight shoes, or sustaining an injury to the toe. If you have an ingrown toenail that is causing discomfort or infection, please try and consult a professional Podiatrist, Chiropodist or Foot Health Practitioner. “
