Probably the most common issue we see at the centre is ingrown toe nails.
The good news is this uncomfortable and often very painful condition can be treated easily, effectively and in many cases permanently.
But what causes them and what can be done about them.
There are several reasons why you may develop an ingrown toenail. These include excessive nail curvature, trauma, nail plate problems and even improper pedicure or nail care treatment.
Thankfully, there are several things you can do at home to relieve your symptoms.
These include careful and regular cutting and filing, applying olive oil down the side of the nail to soften surrounding skin and wearing proper fitting shoes.
You can also bathe feet in warm salt water daily, applying gauze to create a barrier between the nail and skin.
However, most patients benefit enormously from professional care to ensure comfort and if caught early will preserve or restore a healthy nail appearance and structure.
We offer professional services including nail bracing, pedicure and if necessary surgery.
The benefit of using a medical expert is that you have peace of mind, full access to all available options and permanent cures to the problem.
