Understanding and Treating Ingrown Toenails

Ingrown toenails occur when the nail grows into the surrounding skin, causing pain, redness, and potentially infection. This condition can be caused by incorrect nail trimming, tight footwear, or genetic factors.

Surgical Solutions for Ingrown Toenails

Surgical intervention is a reliable method for permanently addressing ingrown toenails. Procedures are conducted in a clinical setting and typically involve local anaesthesia. There are several surgical options, depending on the severity and recurrence of the condition:
Nail Avulsion: Removal of the entire toenail.
Wedge Excision

Removal of the ingrown portion of the nail and the affected tissue.

Nail-bed Ablation

Removal of the nail or part of it, followed by the application of a chemical (e.g., phenol) to prevent regrowth.

Nail Surgery

Preparation for Surgery

Patients are advised to stop smoking and maintain a healthy weight to reduce the risk of complications and improve recovery outcomes.

Postoperative Care

Recovery involves keeping the operated toe elevated and the dressing dry to reduce swelling and prevent infection. Physical activity, especially sports or strenuous exercise, should be limited for at least 2 weeks post-surgery.

Preventing Ingrown Toenails

Preventive measures include proper nail cutting techniques—trimming nails straight across without rounding the corners—and wearing appropriately sized footwear.
