Relief from Ingrown Toenails at Central Florida Foot & Ankle Institute

Ingrown toenails can be more than just a nuisance; they can cause significant pain and lead to infection if not treated properly. At Central Florida Foot & Ankle Institute, we provide professional and compassionate care to treat ingrown toenails, helping you find relief and prevent recurrence.

Understanding Ingrown Toenails

An ingrown toenail occurs when the edge of a toenail grows into the skin of the toe. This can happen on any toe but most commonly affects the big toe. Ingrown toenails can be caused by improper toenail trimming, tight footwear, or injury.

Symptoms of Ingrown Toenails

  • Pain and tenderness along one or both sides of the toenail
  • Redness around the toenail
  • Swelling of the toe around the nail
  • Infection of the tissue around the toenail

Our Comprehensive Treatment Approach

Treatment depends on the severity of the ingrown toenail:

  • Conservative Care: Soaking the foot, lifting the nail, and using antibiotics if an infection is present.
  • Partial Nail Removal: For more severe cases, removing the part of the nail that is ingrown.
  • Total Nail Removal: In cases of chronic ingrown toenails, removal of the entire toenail may be necessary.

Advanced Treatment Options

We also offer:

  • Laser Treatment: To effectively treat the nail and reduce the chance of recurrence.
  • Nail Matrixectomy: A procedure to prevent the regrowth of the ingrown portion of the nail.
