Permanent Ingrown Toenail Relief in Ennis TX

ingrown toenail in ennis txShould You See Our Ennis Podiatrist About Your Ingrown Toenail?

Does your big toenail hurt when you wear shoes? Do ingrown toenails run in your family? While an ingrown toenail may simply resolve, it also has the potential to be life changing and can even lead to a life-threatening infection.

What causes an ingrown toenail?

Believe it or not, ingrown toenails can be inherited. Just like the color of your eyes. Sometimes, the shape of the nail causes an ingrown toenail. Some people have wide toenails, while others may have curved or thick toenails. This makes it to where the toenail cannot easily grow free at the sides. These conditions can also make cutting the nail very difficult and can result in the nail piercing the skin. If  this small nail spike breaks the skin, a sore is can occur and infection can follow.

What Are The Signs?

The most common signs of an ingrown toenail include:

  • Pain on the sides of your toenail
  • Redness around your toenail
  • Swelling near the sides of your toenail
  • Temperature coming from the painful or swollen area
  • Pus in the painful area of your toe

We Can Help You

The good news is that getting an ingrown toenail fixed by your Ennis podiatrist is a quick and relatively painless procedure. You will have near-instant relief. We numb the toe with a little anesthetic and remove the ingrown part of the toenail. A cotton swab with Phenol on it can be applied to the nail matrix. This can permanently prevent the ingrown toenail from returning.

If you have noticed any of the ingrown toenail signs we listed, see your foot specialist to have the toe evaluated. If the toenail becomes infected then your risk of complications increases. Infection can travel from the toenail into the bone. Bone infections are very serious and can lead to toe amputation. Ingrown toenails are too easy to fix to allow this to happen.

If you are diabetic, the risk of infection is even higher due to the possibility of poor circulation in your feet. Make sure you check your feet on a daily basis for any redness, swelling or drainage around your toenails. If you are diabetic, you may have neuropathy that prevents you from feeling pain or discomfort so it is best to check the toes visually.
