A Foot Specialist's Guide to Ingrown Toenails, Cincinnati, Ohio

Ingrown toenails aren’t just painful—if left unaddressed, they can also cause significant health problems. Those who are constantly plagued by this ailment should see a foot specialist as soon as possible. At Centers for Foot & Ankle Care, their podiatrists provide treatment and advice to help patients avoid this uncomfortable issue. To help you better understand your condition, they offer the following information.

Ingrown Toenails Are a Painful Problem

Foot SpecialistAn ingrown toenail refers to a painful condition in which the outer edge of the toenail grows into the skin. This can cause foot pain, swelling, and infection. Although anyone who experiences significant discomfort related to this problem should see a podiatrist, it’s especially important to do so if you suffer from diabetes or any other condition which restricts blood flow to the feet.

While you may be able to treat the issue yourself by clipping the edge of the toenail, if you don’t know what caused the problem, it’s likely to develop again. On top of that, if a toenail has grown into your skin, you need a specialist to rule out infection.

A Foot Specialist Can Identify Possible Causes

There are many potential causes of ingrown toenails. Sometimes, you may simply be wearing shoes that crowd your toes. In other cases, people with this condition clip their toenails at awkward angles. Some people naturally have toenails with more pronounced curves than average members of the population. To get proper treatment, you must get to the root of the problem.

At Centers for Foot & Ankle Care, a team of trained foot specialists will work closely with you to ensure you fully understand your condition. They’ll also offer treatment options for infections, and let you know what steps you can take to avoid this problem in the future. Visit them online for more information.
