What can our specialists do for you?
Ingrowing toenails occur as a result of the nail growing into the sides of the skin surrounding it, leading to symptoms including soreness, inflammation, and infection. Tell-tale signs that you're suffering from an ingrowing toenail include redness, pain upon pressure, and blood or discharge from the affected area.
A minor surgical procedure known as a nail avulsion is used to treat the most severe cases of ingrown toenails. When either part, or the entire affected toenail is removed. Though you'll feel no pain, as the operation is conducted under local anaesthetic, it's recommended to take painkillers and rest your foot in the days immediately following the procedure. So you may need up to two days off work to recover.
