Ingrown toenails can be extremely painful conditions that are caused by a number of different factors such as:
- Excessive sweating
- Tight footwear
- Flat feet
- The anatomical structure of your toe
They can affect any toe, but most commonly involve the big toe nails. If left untreated, the ingrowing portion of nail can enter the skin and act as a portal of entry for bacteria to cause an infection that may require antibiotics.
If you have an ingrowing nail you shouldn’t attempt “bathroom treatment” on it.
Stephanie Cooper is highly qualified to manage your ingrown nail both conservatively and surgically to ensure that you remain happy and healthy on your feet. Call and ask about scheduling an appointment today!
