What is the best way to treat an ingrowing nail?

Where possible, we will provide fast and simple conservative treatment at your first appointment to reduce any pain you are experiencing.

We will then discuss a longer-term treatment plan, taking in all available options including nail surgery.

Nail surgery is a minor procedure, carried out under local anaesthetic in our state-of-the-art clinics in Inverness and Elgin. Following your surgery, the ingrowing section of nail will be permanently removed, ensuring it causes you no more discomfort in the future.

What happens if an ingrowing toenail goes untreated?

Untreated ingrowing toenails can easily become infected, causing additional pain and discomfort. This can lead to additional problems like ulcers, sores and loss of blood flow.

Seeking professional help to identify and treat the problem quickly and effectively is the best way to avoid any further complications.

What causes ingrowing toenails?

Ingrowing toenails are a common problem and can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • Cutting toenails incorrectly
  • Shoes and footwear that places a lot of pressure on your toes
  • Injuries to your feet
  • Bad foot hygiene, such as not keeping your feet clean or dry.

We have a range of solutions to treat your ingrowing toenail, and will discuss these with you at your appointment. We will also share advice on how to avoid ingrowing toenails again in the future.
