Footwise Home Podiatry offer specialised services for ingrown toenails, which can be painful and potentially lead to infection if left untreated.

Assessment and Diagnosis: During an appointment, the podiatrist will examine the affected toe(s) to assess the severity of the ingrown toenail and any associated complications, such as infection or inflammation.

Nail Trimming:  We will carefully trim the ingrown portion of the toenail, ensuring that the nail edge is properly shaped to prevent further irritation. This typically results in instant pain relief for someone suffering with an ingrown toe nail. 

Surgical Treatment: In some cases a minor surgical procedure may be required to permanently remove a recurrent ingrown toe nail. Please note this surgical procedure cannot be done in the home setting, however Footwise Home Podiatry can assess your needs, discuss surgical options and refer you for surgery if required. 

Education and Prevention: The podiatrist will provide guidance on proper nail care techniques and footwear choices to reduce the risk of ingrown toenails in the future.

Follow-up Care: Depending on the severity of the ingrown toenail and the chosen treatment method, the podiatrist may schedule follow-up appointments to monitor healing and ensure that the condition does not recur.
