Ingrown Nails

Ingrown Nails

Common causes of ingrown nails include:

  • Poor nail cutting technique
  • Direct trauma
  • Poor fitting footwear
  • Genetic traits (e.g. curved or thickened nails)

When an ingrown nail becomes painful you should consult your Podiatrist before it worsens and becomes infected. The nail slither growing into the skin must be physically removed and a local anaesthetic can be administered if required.

Some people suffer with recurrent ingrown nails, which can be treated through surgical means to permanently remove the offending piece of nail.
