Ingrown & Ingrowing Toenails

Ingrowing toenailIngrowing toenail

Ingrowing toenails are a common painful problem. Often clients have had an ingrowing toenail for some time and they may have been prescribed several courses of antibiotics. Ingrowing toenails will not settle until the ingrowing part of the nail is removed.

What causes an ingrowing toenail?

What happens during the ingrowing toenail removal procedure?

What happens after the ingrowing part of the toenail is removed?

Will there be any post-operative infection?

  • Infection immediately following the procedure is unlikely
  • On rare occasions,(mostly if wound-care advice is not followed) an infection may occur usually between 1-2 weeks following the procedure

Will the ingrowing toenail grow back?

  • There may be a recurrence of ingrowing toenail
  • There may be unwanted re-growth of all or part of the nail
  • The nail plate may be damaged

Can I claim on my health insurance?

  • Masucci Podiatry is recognised by all the major health insurers. Whilst we will always answer your questions to the best of our ability, clients should be aware of the terms of their health insurance policy before coming to the first appointment with us.
