INGROWN TOENAILS DISCUSSED BY PODIATRIST

 

DR. ERIC HART, A NORTH DAKOTA PODIATRIST STATES, "MANY PEOPLE TRIM TOENAILS BY TAPERING THE CORNERS SO THE NAIL CURVES WITH THE SHAPE OF THE TOE.  BUT THIS TECHNIQUE MAY ENCOURAGE  THE TOENAIL TO GROW INTO THE SKIN OF YOUR TOE.  THE SIDES OR CORNERS OF THIS NAIL THEN DIGS INTO YOUR SKIN.  THE SURROUNDING SKIN IS LIKELY TO BECOME SWOLLEN AND TENDER AND CAN BECOME INFECTED.  THE PROBLEM MOST OFTEN OCCURS WITH THE BIG TOE."

PODIATRIST, HART ALSO STATES, "SHOE PRESSURE, INJURY, FUNGUS INFECTION, HEREDITY, AND POOR FOOT STRUCTURE ALSO MAY CAUSE INGROWN TOENAILS.  TRIM TOENAILS STRAIGHT ACROSS, SELECT PROPER SHOE SIZE, STYLE AND RESPOND TO FOOT PAIN IN A TIMELY MANNER."

DR. HARDY'S FOOT CLINIC PRACTICES CONSERVATIVE FOOT CARE WHERE WE AVOID MEDICATIONS AND SURGERY AT ALL COSTS, BUT SOMETIMES SURGICAL REMOVAL OF AN INGROWN TOENAIL IS UNAVOIDABLE.  MY FOOT CLINIC HAS 8 COMPUTERIZED PAINLESS INJECTION SYSTEMS WHICH MAKES THE SURGICAL REMOVAL OF INGROWN TOENAIL VIRTUALLY 100% PAINFUL.
