Ingrown Toenails

Ingrown toenails occur when the corner or edge of a toenail grows into the surrounding skin. This leads to pain, inflammation, swelling and, if left untreated, infection. 


Signs & Symptoms:



Early identification and treatment of ingrown toenails is key.

Your Podiatrist will carefully remove the part of the nail impacting the skin and debride the surrounding callus if required. For most ingrown toenails, this treatment is successful.

For those with recurrent ingrown toenails, infection and/or pain, Nail Surgery may be recommended. This involves the permanent removal of part or all of the nail. The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic in the comfort of our clinic. Read more about Nail Surgery.
