There are basically two types of ingrowing toenail and we can help you:
ACUTE – where a piece of nail actually pierces the skin often resulting in infection and overgrowth of reactive tissue. We often see this in younger patients, particularly teenagers, but it can be the result of trauma or poor nail cutting techniques.
CHRONIC – where the nail shape gradually changes over the years, often associated with thickening. The nail edges tend to press into the soft tissues causing pain even with the lightest of pressures. This tends to be seen more from the age of 40 onwards and need not be associated with trauma.
Fixing an ingrown toenail may be as simple as advice and help on toenail care or may require more complex ingrowing toenail removal surgery as mentioned above, which may include a nail surgery such as a partial nail removal or surgical nail edge excision. Our HCPC Podiatrists and Chiropodist at Fordham-Rees Podiatry are experts in treating ingrown toenails.
Ingrown Toenail Common causes:
Trauma to the nail
Improper cutting of toenails
Tight shoes or hosiery
Abnormal shape of nail plate
Abnormal thickness of nail
What is an Ingrowing Toenail?
The toenail becomes ‘ingrowing’ when the side of the nail cuts into the skin next to the nail. This can become very painful. An ingrowing toenail is a medical condition where the outside edge(s) of the toenail becomes embedded into the soft tissue of the toe, causing irritation, pain, Inflammation, hypergranulation of the tissue or infection. If this happens, our highly trained Cardiff Podiatrists at Fordham-Rees Podiatry can conservatively treat the ingrowing nail as painlessly as possible and give you complete relief from the excruciating pain.
In some cases, ingrown toenails are caused by tight fitting shoes, it is however more common in people who cut their toenails very short and ’round’. Our HCPC Podiatrist and Chiropodist can explain to you how to cut your nails the correct way so that you may be able to prevent your nail ingrowing in the future. Our ingrown toenail treatment isn't just about treating the issue, we can help educate you on prevention so that future ingraining toenails are hopefully prevented.
If the ingrown toenail persists or becomes an ongoing problem, all or part of the toenail can be removed surgically under local anesthetic. This ingrown toenail treatment is very effective and more importantly permanent with a very high success rate.
