More about Ingrown Toenails.

Ingrown toenails can often start small before becoming incredibly painful. It is caused by the nail growing into the skin of your toe instead of over it. An ingrown toenail can start out with a bit of mild irritation before developing into a serious infection. Treating an ingrown toenail early on can prevent the need for a procedure.

If you think you might be dealing with an ingrown toenail, don’t hesitate! Reach out to us at Dallas Direct Podiatry for treatment.

Symptoms of Ingrown Toenails

Catching an ingrown toenail early on can make a big difference. Symptoms include:

• Pain and swelling on the side of the nail

• Redness of the toe

• Oozing or drainage around the toenail

Improper Trimming

By far, the most common cause of ingrown toenails is improper trimming. If a nail is cut too short, the skin next to the nail may fold over the nail, causing the nail to grow into the flesh of the toe, instead of over it.

Treatment of Ingrown Toenails

Ingrown toenail treatment can include soaking and cutting the nail back. This can resolve minor cases. If your ingrown toenail is too severe, a procedure can be performed to eliminate your ingrown toenail for good.
