Treat Ingrown Toenails ASAP Near Santa Monica


Ingrown toenails are when the edges or corners of the toenails grow into the skin around them. This occurs mostly in big toes, but when they are treated at home the process tends to be done improperly or in unsanitary or unhygienic ways. Mishandled ingrown toenail treatment can result in complications like wounds and infections.


Additionally, conditions like diabetes increase the risk of complications because the lower extremities get poor circulation. This results in a diminished healing process and immune response. Infections can become worse and gangrene might even set in.


In short, it is recommended to have ingrown toenail treatment done by medical professionals.


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.

Ingrown toenail treatment starts 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.
