Ingrown Toe Nail Treatment

Ingrowing toe nails are often caused by poor nail cutting, excessively sweaty feet, tight footwear, or if you naturally have very curled nails. Seek treatment sooner rather than later and the problem can easily be resolved. Leave it too long and the nail becomes very painful and can result in subsequent pus, inflammation and infection.

Often, we can treat the nail in one to two sessions, however, if it is a continuous issue then a partial nail avulsion, where part of the nail is permanently removed, may be a better consideration.
