Ingrown toenails are a condition that we commonly see in our Practice. They are caused by the nail plate piercing the skin and then this wound becomes infected. They may be caused by cutting nails incorrectly (ie down the side of the nail) or they may be caused by the shape of the nail plate which is purely genetic. If left untreated they may become severely infected and become a serious problem over time. We have methods of treating these permanently with very little pain or discomfort to the patient. If you have problems with ingrowing nails don’t leave it too long before contacting us.
