Ouch, That Hurts!
Thousands of Australians are treated by podiatrists for ingrown toenails each year.
This common problem often stems from toenail trauma—stubbing the toe or dropping something on it, for example. And, shoes with tight toe boxes certainly don’t help.
When treated properly, ingrown toenails often resolve without incident. Sometimes you can treat ingrown toenails at home, but recurring cases could mean that there’s a need for ingrown toenail surgery.
Minor instances of ingrown toenails may be treated at home, but our Riverton podiatrist will set you on the right course immediately.
