Ingrown Toenail Treatment Newton Abbot

Ingrown toenails are an unsightly and often painful condition that commonly occurs in individuals, usually on the big toe. Professional treatment is the best course of action, and we never recommend attempting to fix ingrown toenails at home or ignoring the issue altogether. Taking care of your feet is just as important as any other part of your body. It is surprising that once a problem occurs with your feet, the limitations and strain it can put on your life can be extensive. So, book a consultation with The Foot Man today for ingrown toenail treatment in Newton Abbot.

Causes of Ingrown Toenails

When a nail becomes ingrown, it pierces the skin and can lead to swelling or infection if untreated. Common causes of ingrown toenails include:

  • Cutting toenails with sloped edges. Our specialists recommend cutting them in a straight line to avoid in-growth.
  • Bio-mechanical issues e.g. the way you walk, weight and pressure.
  • Inappropriate footwear (either too tight, too loose or high heels).
  • An injury such as stubbing your toe by accident or from sports injuries.

Further irritation, from continuous wear of inappropriate shoes or even socks, can lead to an infection. To prevent a minor injury from turning into something severe, contact our certified foot clinic today.
