Ingrown Toe Nails
Ingrown nails are nails whose corners or sides dig painfully into the skin, often causing infection. They are frequently caused by improper nail trimming, but also by shoe pressure, injury, fungus infection, heredity, and poor foot structure. If they become painful or infected, contact our office. We may remove the ingrown portion of the nail, and if the condition reoccurs frequently, we may permanently remove the nail.
Painful Fungal Nails
Since fungal nails are usually more resistant and more difficult to treat, topical or oral antifungal medications may be prescribed. In addition, the trimming of these types of nails can be difficult and dangerous for the patient, and should be performed by a qualified podiatrist.
