Ingrown toenails are a common, painful, condition that occur when skin on one or both sides of a nail grows over the edges of the nail, or when the nail itself grows into the skin.

Sometimes this can be a one-off caused by trauma, and other times it can be a chronic, recurrent, condition that repeats itself time and time again. Ingrown toenails often results in an infection, but even with antibiotics, unless the offending nail is professionally addressed by a Podiatrist, it will continue to be painful and easily become reinfected.

Routine chiropody treatment can alleviate some symptoms, but in some cases where either the condition is more severe or recurrent, nail surgery under local anaesthetic will need to be performed by our podiatrist. - this will be discussed with you if necessary.
