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
