WHAT IS AN INGROWN TOENAIL?
An ingrown nail is one that grows into the skin, causing an inflammatory reaction (redness, pain and edema) and, if untreated, an infection. This painful condition is very common in patients of all ages. All nails can become ingrown, but the big toe is the one that is most at risk.Call us now to get treatment for your ingrown toenail in Brossard.
CAUSES OF INGROWN TOENAILS
Improper nail cutting
The shape of the nail (too curved, thick)
Improper footwear (too short or too narrow)
Repetitive injury (during sports) or isolated injury (a blow or something dropped on the foot)
Unfortunately, if an ingrown toenail is not properly treated there is a risk it will get infected. It is very important not to take this condition lightly, especially for diabetic patients.
At Clinique Podiatrique Rive-Sud, our professionals will determine the appropriate treatment to resolve the situation. Treatment can be as simple as properly trimming the nail so that the corner of the nail no longer penetrates the skin.
Sometimes, minor surgery may be necessary. The surgery is carried out under local anesthesia and is painless. This method can permanently solve the problem of an ingrown toenail.
