Ingrowing Toenails

Why Antibiotics will not cure an Ingrowing Toenail

Many new customers attend our clinic with longstanding, painful ingrown toenails. They have often been back to see their GP 4 or 5 times, and at each time have been given another course of antibiotics to try to resolve their ingrowing toenail. While the antibiotics dulled the inflammation, once the course was completed, the inflammation and pain returned.

The problem is that an ingrowing toenail is caused by a spicule of nail growing into the surrounding skin, which then causes inflammation and exquisite pain.

Antibiotics will not remove the spicule of nail only your podiatrist can.

Ease the pain of your tender ingrowing toenail by allowing our specialists to provide a quick & permanent solution to your toe problem.

Treating Painful Ingrowing Toenails

Ingrown Toenail

Put your trust in our highly respected team, who are valued by general practitioners in our area. Clients are frequently recommended to us by their doctors, who are happy to inform patients of our services.

We offer a highly successful treatment. After the toe in anaesthetised, the ingrowing portion of the nail is removed and the chemical cautery is applied to the nail bed in order to prevent portion of the nail re-growing.

You will also receive ongoing nail care advice, to prevent further problems. There is a small risk of re-growth and, should this occur within 12-months of the surgery, we will undertake a revision of the surgery free of charge.
