Ingrown Toenail Care

An ingrown toenail can become so severe that the throbbing pain makes wearing a closed shoe unbearable. Before your ingrown toenail gets any worse, see Dr. Thompson at Ace Feet in Weymouth, MA.

 

We have traditional as well as new, non-surgical, permanent, treatment options available.  In the picture above, you can see how the nail is curved on the left hand picture and flattened on the right. We use Onyfix to train the toenail to grow straight. This can prevent future ingrown toenails.

Why do ingrown toenails occur?

An ingrown toenail develops when your nail grows into your skin, rather than over it.

Causes of ingrown toenails include:

  • Inherited nail shape that’s overly curved
  • Wearing snug-fitting shoes
  • Dropping something on your toe
  • Stubbing your toe

     

What are the symptoms of an ingrown toenail?

If your toenail is ingrown, you’re probably going to notice some redness and swelling on one side, or even both sides, of your affected toenail. You may also experience:

  • Throbbing pain
  • Oozing pus or bleeding
  • Tenderness wearing a closed shoe
  • Difficulty bearing weight on your foot

Treatment for ingrown toenails
