Ingrown Toenail Treatment in Sacramento, California

“We offer a GUARANTEED Ingrown Toenail Correction”

What is an Ingrown Toenail?

Ingrown toenails often are the result of trimming your toenails too short, particularly on the sides of your big toes.

While they are very common, ingrown toenails can also be very painful. When trimming your nails, avoid tapering the corners so that the nail curves with the shape of your toe. The sides of the nail will curl down and dig into your skin. Shoes that are too tight or short also may cause ingrown toenails.

Ingrown toenails start out hard, swollen and tender, and later, may become sore, red and infected. Your skin may start to grow over the ingrown toenail.

Soaking your foot in warm, soapy water several times each day is usually a good way to treat an ingrown nail. We recommend that you visit our office and let Dr. Kahan determine the best course of treatment for your condition.

Antibiotics are sometimes prescribed if an infection is present. Part of your ingrown toenail (partial nail plate avulsion) may need to be surgically removed if an acute infection occurs. The procedure involves local anesthetic and removing the ingrown part of the toenail. One of the techniques Dr. Kahan uses guarantees that the ingrown portion of the nail will never be a problem for you ever again. You will NEVER have to pay for any procedures for removal of that nail portion if it ever grows back (office visit charges may apply). Call us and see if this quick office procedure is for you.

You can prevent ingrown toenails by:

  • Trimming your toenails straight across with no rounded corners.
  • Ensuring that your shoes and socks are not too tight.
  • Keeping your feet clean at all times.
