Ingrown Toenail

f4f-Logo-no-bg.png

Ingrown toenails are a common problem and occur when the nail starts to curve and grows into the skin of the toe. Most commonly they present on the big toe and affect people of all ages both men and women. The condition can be incredibly painful and there is a possibility of infection and future health issues if not treated promptly. Typical causes are:

 

Incorrect nail cutting

Injury

Genetics

Sweaty feet

Thickened nails in the elderly

Tight-fitting footwear

 

 

First4Feet offers a non-surgical treatment which will resolve the problem for most clients. In extreme cases, where surgery is required, we will refer you to a specialist podiatrist who will be able to perform minor surgery to correct the problem.

 

If you experience an ingrown toenail and suffer from circulatory problems, or have been diagnosed with Diabetes, you must seek our professional advice from the outset.

 

Treatment of ingrown toenails

An ingrown toenail will not heal itself and depending on the severity, you may require antibiotics to clear up an infection. Your first appointment will consist of our foot practitioner examining your foot and cutting the nail to alleviate the problem. They will then advise you on further treatment either at home or in clinic.

 

Further Treatment

You will require at least one or two appointments several weeks apart to check how the nail is growing.

 

Length of Appointment

30 minutes

 

Price

£27

We place great emphasis on clinical cleanliness, and we abide strictly to the care guidelines set out for Foot Health Professionals.

 Instruments are sterilized in an autoclave and remain sterile in a vacuum sealed pouch until opened during treatment so there can be no risk of cross contamination between patients.

Full Foot Treatment

One of the most popular treatments offered across all First4Feet Foot clinics, a Full Foot Treatment will not only leave your feet feeling in tip-top condition but most importantly it can identify any issues before they become too serious and enable any required treatment to begin promptly

Toe/Finger Nail Cutting

If you struggle to cut your toenails and fingernails, possibly due to a difficulty in maintaining a safe grip of the clippers, or struggle to reach your toenails we can help. The process of how to cut toenails differs slightly from that of how to cut fingernails.
