Ingrown Toenail Treatments & Removal
When you visit one of our offices, we can remove the ingrown nail and get you back on your feet and pain-free.
Once you visit our office, one of the first actions we can take is to prescribe either an oral or topical medication to help remove the infection. For people who don't have long-term problems with ingrown toenails, this can take care of the problem permanently.
However, if you experience chronic ingrown nails, the podiatrist may choose to use surgery to remove the part of the nail that is causing problems. We offer full surgical services for Lindon ingrown toenail patients and are proud of our excellent bedside manner!
Symptoms of Ingrown Toenails
Not sure if your toe pain is caused by an ingrown nail? Here are a few of the most common symptoms:
- Your nail is curved and looks like it is growing into your skin
- Your toe is painful to the touch and/or swollen
- The area around your nail is red and/or swollen
In addition to these symptoms, there can also be drainage around the area along with an unpleasant odor.
Home Remedies for Fast Ingrown Toenail Pain Relief
Our office is happy to advise you on at-home remedies if your pain is minor or while you wait for your appointment.
Some remedies you can try are soaking your foot in warm water, applying antiseptic & bandages, and padding the underside of the nail with cotton to keep it away from the skin.
