Ouch! That throbbing ache radiating from your toe isn’t your imagination – it’s an ingrown toenail rearing its ugly head. These seemingly small-scale irritants can actually balloon into something bigger, leading to stubborn infections and persistent pain.

Whatever the ailment you might be suffering from, the team at Podiatry Center of New Jersey is always happy to help. Let’s tackle this common nuisance with preventative tips and treatment tactics, all with the assistance of your trusty podiatrist.

Prevention Power

Treatment Tactics

  • Early InterventionCatch it early with at home care! Soak your foot in warm water with Epsom salts, gently push away any overlying skin, and apply a topical antibiotic ointment when necessary.
  • Podiatric Proactive: If DIY doesn’t cut it, consult your podiatrist! They can safely remove any embedded nail edges, manage infection, and provide personalized advice.
  • Minimal Intervention: For many cases, a podiatrist will use wedges or splints to gently lift the nail edge and promote proper growth.

Remember, ingrown toenails are stealthy problems that like to lay low before they take a turn for the worse. Before they can catch you flat footed, consult a podiatrist. An expert DPM will help you nip any potential problems in the bud, keeping feet healthy, fit, and fresh for whatever comes next.
