Ingrown Toenails Treatment Brooklyn
1797 Pitkin Ave 4th Floor Suite 402, Brooklyn, NY 11212
An ingrown toenail occurs when a toenail cuts into the adjacent skin, causing inflammation and discomfort. The large (great) toes are most commonly affected.
Signs and symptoms of an ingrown toenail arise from inflammation of the nail bed. These include toe pain, swelling, redness of the nail bed, and yellow, foul-smelling (pus) drainage. Other associated signs and symptoms can consist of limping or gait disturbances due to the toe pain. Ingrown toenails often recur after treatment. If the nail bed becomes infected, it may result in cellulitis (infection and inflammation of the surrounding skin and connective tissues).
