Ingrowing Toenail Treatment

               Ingrown toenail                                                          

An ingrown toenail is a common problem where the nail grows into the toe. It can be painful, but there are things you can do to ease the pain.

Check if you have an ingrown toenail

You usually get an ingrown toenail on your big toe. But you can get them on any toe.

Your toe can also get infected.

Signs of an infected toe include:

  • pus coming out of it
  • you feel hot or shivery

How to treat an ingrown toenail at home

If you go to a Podiatrist Chiropodist they’ll usually suggest you try these things first.

               Do  

           
  •              
  •            soak your foot in warm water 3 to 4 times a day for a few days – this softens the skin around your toe and stops the nail growing into it    
  •              
  •            keep your foot dry for the rest of the day    
  •              
  •            wear wide, comfortable shoes or sandals    
  •              
    •            take paracetamol or ibuprofen to ease the pain    
    •      

                   Don’t  

             
    •              
    • do not cut your toenail – leave it to grow out    
  •              
  •            do not pick at your toe or toenail    
  •            do not wear tight, pointy shoes    

  • If it is still painfull give me a ring on 01604 422772 to make an appointment.

    Warts and verrucas


    Warts and verrucas are small lumps on the skin that most people have at some point in their life. They usually go away on their own but may take months or even years.


    Check if you have a wart or verruca


    Warts feel firm and rough. They can appear on palms, knuckles, knees and fingers.Verrucas appear on your feet. They have tiny black dots under the hard skin.Some warts are round, flat and can be yellow (plane warts). You can have many of them.Clusters of warts, spread over an area of skin (mosaic warts) are common on feet and hands.

    Warts do not cause you any harm but some people find them itchy, painful or embarrassing. Verrucas are more likely to be painful – like standing on a needle.
