Ingrown toenails can be very painful. In addition, if they are not treated early, an infection can set in. Thus, we make sure that patients with ingrown toenails are seen right away.
Causes of ingrown toenails include:
After examining the toe, the doctor will select the treatment best suited for you. If an infection is present, an oral antibiotic may be prescribed. Usually, a local anesthetic is used to lessen the discomfort. If your toe is tender we will ensure that your toe is completely numb before taking care of the nail problem. We even numb up your skin with a cold spray before you are given a local anesthetic!
