Have an Ingrown Toenail? We can help!
Do you suffer from toenails that get infected all the time, or just hurt, or are super ugly and you don’t want them anymore? If normal procedures are not helping, sometimes a permanent solution is to have nail surgery, which sounds a lot more scary than it is.
Our podiatrists are highly trained in this procedure, it can be completed in the clinic and you can be back in shoes within a couple of days. The podiatrist will talk to you beforehand to make sure this is the correct treatment for you
Tips to Manage Sore Toes
Warm salt water foot bath. It’s a lovely way to help clean and soothe the sore toe.
Betadine (as long you are not allergic) and a dry dressing. Plasters don’t let the area breathe, the area under the plaster can sweat and this is not good for infection.
Try not to cut into the corners of the nails, or pick or leave jagged edges
