Alleviate ingrown toenail pain and prevent infection with AFD

More often than not, the culprit of ingrown toenails are shoes that hug and squeeze too tightly. Tightly fitted shoes can force the edges of your nails to push into the surrounding skin, causing inflammation and irritation. Additionally, the wear over time can cause the nail to grow inwardly into the skin where nerves become activated. The bottom line is, ingrown toenails are painful. The best way to prevent ingrown toenails is to check how well your shoes fit consistently. However, you may be asking, what do you do about ingrown nails that have already grown? Become infected? Starting to cause pain? At this point, you should make an appointment with a podiatrist.

Our team of podiatrists and ingrown toenail specialists have dealt with a variety of cases. After a careful and gentle examination of your foot, we’ll create a treatment plan that quickly addresses your pain, alleviating the ingrown toenail and removing any infection.

Yes! After your ingrown toenail treatment, Arizona Foot Doctors will provide a customized prevention plan to avoid this pain in the future. Sometimes, a routine as simple as keeping your feet moisturized and clean can help you to prevent ingrown nails.

Your footwear matters when it comes to treating your ingrown toenails. If you want to avoid an ingrown nail in the future, then you must have shoes and sock that fit correctly. If your shoes are too small, then your toes will be crowded, and the pressure may lead to ingrown nails.
