2. Review Surgical or Non-Surgical Options

We'll review options with you to determine what the best fit is for resolving your ingrown toenail pain.

3. Resolve Your Ingrown Toenail for Good

No matter your case, we'll help you move closer to a pain-free foot, and teach you how to maintain your foot to avoid future injuries.

What is an Ingrown Toenail?

In ingrown toenail is a common condition in which either the toenail grows into the surrounding skin of the toe, or the skin of the toe grows over the nail. Common symptoms include pain, swelling, tenderness, and infection.

Mild v. Moderate v. Severe Ingrown Toenail

A mild ingrown toenail will show the earliest symptoms including redness, tenderness, pain, and maybe slight swelling. As the ingrown toenail is left untreated, an infection may develop which is usually accompanied by more discomfort and swelling. A severe case of an ingrown toenail will show chronic inflammation and will often produce a bad odor.

When is an Ingrown Toenail Serious?

It's beneficial to see a podiatrist before your pain worsens or the ingrown nail produces an infection. You should see a podiatrist like our podiatrist clinic in New Jersey right away if redness and swelling is increasing, you see pus or blood coming from the infection, or if the pain is growing considerably worse.

Will an Ingrown Toenail Eventually Grow Out?

An ingrown toenail will not go away without an intervention, although many ingrown toenails can be treated at home with frequent epsom salts warm feet soaks and antibiotic creams.


What does an Ingrown Toenail Look Like?

An ingrown toenail happens when a nail grows into surrounding skin, or when skin grows over a toenail. Ingrown toenails can show symptoms of redness, swelling, and infection.
