What is a Ingrown Toenail?

An ingrown toenail occurs when the edge of the toenail grows into the skin of the toe. This can cause pain, redness, swelling, and sometimes infection. Ingrown toenails commonly affect the big toe, but can occur on any toe.

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

Risk Factors for Ingrown Toenails

Ingrown Toenails can be caused by several factors and here are some that can increase your likelihood of developing this painful condition:

Treatment Approach

At Apple Healthcare, we provide a comprehensive approach to treat ingrown toenails that includes:

  • Assessment: Detailed examination of the affected toe and foot to determine the severity of the condition.
  • Medications: prescription in case of infections or high risk of developing an infection in the surrounding skin.
  • Patient Education: understanding what cause and prevents ingrown toenails such as proper nail trimming, appropriate footwear, etc.
  • Surgery: For severe cases, minor surgery may be needed to remove the ingrown part of the nail or to permanently treat chronic ingrown toenails.
