Ingrown Toenail Home Treatment

What You Need to Know About Ingrown Toenails

Our ingrown toenail home treatment can save you from a world of discomfort, with fast and effective remediation solutions that can be carried out in the comfort of your very own home.

Fool & Sole Podiatry will run a comprehensive assessment and diagnosis before implementing any form of treatment. But effectively, an ingrown toenail is when your toenail has grown into the surrounding skin, which causes major irritation and can result in infection if untreated.

A physical examination is generally enough to diagnose the issue, but an X-ray might be necessary to determine how deep the nail has grown into the skin. There are several underlying causes attributed to ingrown toenails, so they’re fairly common. Although, the severity will determine which method of treatment is required. Symptoms can include:

  • Inflamed/swollen skin
  • Build-up of pus
  • Overgrown skin around the nail
  • Possibly bleeding

The Next Stage After Your Ingrown Toenail Home Treatment

As mentioned, a solution will be determined following a detailed assessment during your ingrown toenail home treatment. If conservative measures have been unsuccessful, we’ll recommend a minor procedure called Partial Nail Avulsion (PNA) which is undertaken at the practice.

During the procedure, we carefully remove the impeding nail and correct the shape to prevent reoccurrence. This is completed under local anaesthetic, and most people can return to their normal day to day activities within 2-3 days. We’ll send you home with detailed care information and preventative advice to avoid any further damage.

In addition to our ingrown toenail home treatment, Foot & Sole Podiatry specialises in a range of foot concerns. Our service capabilities include:
