Solutions for a Pressing Issue
If you’ve ever been pricked by a thorn or stabbed by a staple, you’ve experienced what an ingrown toenail can feel like. The slightest pressure can bring on a stabbing pain that doesn’t go away for people who suffer from this condition. The only way to get rid of the discomfort is to invest in toenail treatment.
What is this Ingrown Issue?
Known as one of the most common foot problems, ingrown toenails happen when the sides curve down and grow into the surrounding tissues. The corner can pierce into the flesh on the sides of the big toe. It can happen on one side, both sides, or in both big toes at once. It can also affect the smaller nails, but not very often.
Surgery for this condition is a quick, painless procedure that will remove the side of the nail. If you have a severe, recurring ingrown toenail that presses into the skin, you might have to have it removed. When it heals, there will still be an imprint of where it used to be. However, the pain will be gone!
