Amongst the most common ailments which people come to us with are those affecting their toe nails. Often, these take the form of ingrowing toe nails. An ingrowing toe nail occurs when the sharp corner of the toe nail begins to cut into the tender flesh at the end or side of the toe itself. Now only is this very painful but, if left untreated it can become infected, requiring antibiotics to clear up the infection and, in some cases, an abscess which may require surgical intervention. The causes of ingrowing toe nails can be varied, ranging from incorrect trimming (nails should ideally be trimmed straight across) to tight fitting shoes and, occasionally, an injury or the kind of repeated impact caused by sports such as football. No matter what the cause, an ingrowing to nail should be treated with nail surgery at the earliest possible opportunity, and if you’re looking for nail surgery in London, then Footloose chiropody clinic is by far the best place to come to. Our experienced and highly qualified podiatrist will know precisely how to treat your toenail in a way which will relieve your pain and ensure that the problem doesn’t recur. The nail surgery required to treat an ingrowing nail is a relatively speedy and simple operation and can be carried out in our clinic during the course of a dinner break in a busy working day. The surgeon will apply a local anaesthetic, totally or partially remove the nail in question and then apply a special chemical to the root in order to stop it from simply re-growing. Following surgery the toe will be dressed, the whole procedure usually taking no more than 45 minutes. The patient will then have to visit to have the dressing re-applied after a period of three days, following which the dressing can be changed at home for as long as is necessary – usually a period of between 2 and 10 weeks. It really is as quick and simple as it sounds and the ease with which the whole procedure is carried out means that there’s really no excuse for putting up with the pain and stress of an ingrowing toe nail.
