Have Ingrown Toenails Treated ASAP in Culver City, Los Angeles, California


Ingrown toenails occur when the edges or corners of toenails grow into the skin next to them, occurring mostly in big toes. When they are treated at home, this tends to be done improperly or in unsanitary or unhygienic ways that can result in complications like wounds and infections.


Conditions such as diabetes increase the risk of complications as lower extremities receive poor circulation, so the body's natural healing process and immune response are diminished. Infections can worsen and gangrene may even set in.


This is why ingrown toenail treatment done by medical professionals is recommended.


Ingrown toenails can be the result of:

  • Cutting toenails incorrectly, particularly angling the sides of the nail which can encourage the nail to grow into the skin.

  • Irregular or curved toenails.

  • Tight footwear that puts pressure on the big toes.

  • Toenail injuries, from accidents or athletic activities where the feet receive pressure for long periods of time.

  • Poor posture.

  • Improper hygiene including not keeping feet dry or clean.

Signs of ingrown toenail complications include:

  • Symptoms of ingrown toenails include:

  • Hardening or swelling of the skin next to the nail.

  • Pain when there is pressure on the toe.

  • Fluid buildup around the toe.

When ingrown toenails become infected, they exhibit the following signs:

  • Redness and swelling of the skin

  • Pain

  • Bleeding

  • Oozing discharges

  • Overgrowth of the skin surrounding the toe.

Treatment for ingrown toenails start with a physical exam and possible X-rays in case of infections or injuries. After the diagnosis, treatment can commence. Ingrown toenail treatment ranges from antibiotics to surgical procedures such as partial nail removal.
