Ingrown toenails

Podiatrists are the toenail experts.

An ingrown toenail occurs where a piece of nail pierces the flesh of the toe. It can be painful on use, in shoes and when in bed with the covers on it. It affects around 10,000 people per year in the UK, of which 20% of GP foot appointments are due in ingrown toenails.

At Zest Podiatry & Physio we pride ourselves in being able to help with many nail conditions, we are experts in nail surgery and are always happy to help you. An ingrown nail can feel like you have a splinter, it is often extremely painful and can become inflamed and/or infected. Occasionally it can cause pus and bleeding. They are most common on the big toenail, but can affect the other toes too.

An ingrown toenail is painful and often difficult to manage. We can offer a nail surgery treatment in clinic that can remove part or all of the nail to offer long term comfort and relief.
