Prevention and Cure for Ingrown Toenails (Onychocryptosis)
Ingrown toenails can be agony, but there is no need to suffer from them any longer. Follow these steps, and you can clear up the problem and never suffer from it again.
The nail should never be cut as far back as it can be (along the curb of the toe). They need to be cut straight with the sides of the nail slightly overlapping the skin of the sides. In hindsight it's obvious, but it's surprising how many people don't know of this simple technique. I tell people this all the time, and when the problem is cleared up in a few weeks, they praise me for it. Wear the correct size shoes as well. If they are too tight, they will cause pressure on the toe. This will lead to the nail digging into the flesh.
Treatment Of ingrown toenails can be as simple as using an antiseptic and waiting it out, keeping the nail properly maintained, or in extreme cases, surgery. For more serious cases, see your local podiatrist.
For mild cases, soak the affected foot in antiseptic and warm water each day. Maintain the nail as stated in the prevention section and it should take care of itself in a few weeks.
Simply put, surgery on an ingrown toenail involves Local anesthetic being injected into the toe, and left to work. The piece of nail is then cut out. Ablation- a liquid solution or electrical charge is used to prevent the nail from digging in the skin again. The doctor will decide if Ablation is necessary. After the surgery is completed, toe need to be kept clean to prevent infection. Also the doctor will prescribe any medication the patient may need, and give them tips on proper nail clipping techniques (similar to the prevention section of this article prevention).
There you have it. Prevent it before it becomes an issue, or clean it up if you already suffer from it.
