Common causes of ingrown toe nails include:
Wearing shoes that are too tight around your toe
Cutting your toenails too short or with too much of a curve
Toe or toenail injuries
Toenail naturally grows into a curve
Although surgery is not always necessary, we recommend it if you experience any of the following scenarios:
Attempted at-home remedies which have not resolved the issue
You are experiencing recurring ingrown toe nails
ou have another condition, for example diabetes, which make foot complications more likely
Nail Surgery Aftercare
Your dedicated surgeon will take you through all of the necessary aftercare steps following your treatment. We recommend limiting activity for a day or two after surgery to give your foot time to rest.
For the best results, you should closely follow the instructions given to you by your surgeon, as these will help to prevent infections.
