Ingrown toenails are painful and difficult to deal with on your own. This condition is caused by incorrect nail growth digging into your toe's flesh, resulting in redness, swelling, pain and infection. Foot trauma, improper trimming and genetics are often the reasons why individuals experience ingrown toenails.
Our podiatrist can treat chronic ingrown toenails in Edison and Metuchen by using a chemical to stop the nail's growth. We then gently numb the toe and cut out the nail corner that's causing pain and discomfort. Afterwards, our patients can immediately resume their daily activities. We remove and treat ingrown nails in a gentle and pain-free manner. Call us for a quick treatment today.
