Furthermore, when all conservative treatments fail there is a simple option to resolve the chronic problem. A Podiatrist can perform a simple procedure with no injections that can relieve your pain in a matter of seconds. It’s a simple procedure called a slant back which can be performed with topical anesthesia. It is very effective, and patients walk out of the office in total comfort.
In certain cases, ingrown toenails are recurrent. In these cases, we propose a simple procedure. Did you know that it is possible to permanently correct an ingrown in a Podiatrists office? It’s a minor procedure done under local anesthesia and resolves the problem permanently 95% of the time. Our patients can resume their normal activities the next day as the recovery is rapid. There is no reason to continue to suffer when an effective solution is available.
At our clinic, we offer all modes of treatments for Ingrown toenailsfrom conservative to minimally invasive surgery. Most cases can be resolved in a conservative manner. At home, you can soak your foot in warm water with Epsom salt twice a day to relieve the symptoms of an infected toenail. After the footbath, dry your foot well and apply an antibiotic cream or ointment. A generic triple antibiotic cream or polysporin can help relieve the symptoms of the infected ingrown toenail. Always choose sensible footwear that doesn’t put too much pressure on the toe. Timely intervention and treatment can prevent pain from becoming chronic. Wait times for appointments at our clinics are relatively low. We are always happy to welcome new patients into our family foot care practice.
Ingrown toenails occur when the skin on the side of your toenail becomes red inflamed and sensitive. In that case, there is a strong possibility that you have an ingrown toenail. Ingrown toenails are very frequent in my practice and I probably treat over 400 cases each year. An ingrown nail can be caused by many factors.
