Ingrown Toenails

Ingrown toenails can be painful and disruptive to your daily life. At Wigley Feet, our experienced podiatrists are dedicated to providing effective treatments that alleviate discomfort and promote healthy, pain-free toes.

Understanding Ingrown Toenails: Ingrown toenails occur when the edges of the toenail grow into the surrounding skin, causing pain, redness, swelling, and potential infection. They are commonly caused by improper nail trimming, tight-fitting shoes, trauma, or genetic predisposition.

Our Approach to Treatment: Wigley Feet is committed to helping you find relief from the discomfort of ingrown toenails. Our comprehensive approach to treatment includes the following steps:

  1. Thorough Assessment: Our skilled podiatrists will conduct a detailed examination of your ingrown toenail to assess the severity of the condition and any signs of infection. This assessment guides us in creating a personalized treatment plan.

  2. Conservative Care: For mild cases of ingrown toenails, our podiatrists may recommend conservative treatments. These could include soaking the affected foot in warm water, gently lifting the ingrown edge of the nail, and applying antibiotic ointment to prevent infection.

  3. Partial Nail Removal: In cases where the ingrown toenail is more severe or recurrent, a partial nail removal procedure may be recommended. This minimally invasive procedure involves removing a portion of the nail to alleviate pressure on the surrounding skin.

  4. Permanent Nail Removal: For chronic ingrown toenails that do not respond to other treatments, our podiatrists may suggest a permanent nail removal procedure. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia and involves removing a portion of the nail matrix to prevent regrowth.

  5. Post-Procedure Care: After any nail procedure, our team will provide detailed instructions for wound care and recovery. We will monitor your progress and ensure that your toe heals properly.

  6. Preventive Education: Our experts will offer guidance on proper nail care and footwear choices to prevent future ingrown toenails. This includes tips on nail trimming techniques and selecting shoes that fit properly.
