Ingrown Toenail

Lidcombe Podiatry offers professional treatment for Ingrown Toenails, providing relief and solutions to prevent recurrence.

An ingrown toenail occurs when the edge of a toenail grows into the surrounding skin, causing pain, swelling and sometimes infection. Often resulting from improper nail trimming, tight footwear or injury, this common condition can affect anyone but is especially prevalent among active individuals. At Lidcombe Podiatry, we understand the discomfort caused by ingrown toenails and offer specialised treatments that stand out in the Cumberland region.

What's Involved in Ingrown Toenail Treatment?

Treating an ingrown toenail involves several key steps:

  1. Assessment: Our podiatrists thoroughly examine the affected toe to determine the severity of the condition.
  2. Pain Relief: We provide immediate measures to alleviate pain.
  3. Nail Correction: The ingrown section of the nail is carefully trimmed or removed.
  4. Infection Management: If an infection is present, appropriate antibiotics or antiseptic advice will be given.
  5. Follow-Up Care: We schedule follow-up visits to ensure proper healing and prevent recurrence.

      How to Prevent Ingrown Toenail

      Preventing an ingrown toenail is easier with the right practices:

      Proper Nail Trimming

      Trim nails straight across and avoid cutting them too short. This prevents the nail from growing into the skin.

      Regular Foot Checks

      Especially for those with diabetes or poor circulation, regular checks can catch potential problems early.

      Appropriate Footwear

      Choose shoes that fit well and provide adequate room for your toes to move freely.

      Protective Gear

      If involved in activities that could injure the toes, wearing protective footwear is essential.

      Foot Hygiene

      Maintain clean, dry feet to prevent bacterial or fungal infections that could complicate an ingrown toenail.
