Ingrown Toe Nail

The Ingrown Toenail may be hereditary or caused by a weight gain, cutting the toe inappropriately and other factors.  The Sulcus may become infected and swollen as the nail forces its way into the sulcus.  

Antibiotics may be needed.  On some occasions a partial nail avulsion (removal) may be needed.

It is most important to see you Foot Health Practitioner or Podiatrist and failure to treat the condition may result in gangrene.
