Ingrowing Toenail treatment in Guildford
The Solely Feet team can help with ingrowing toenails. They can develop as a result of a bad nail cutting technique, nail peeling, or from injury. Whatever the reason, they can lead to infection and cause the toe to become red, hot, swollen and painful. GPs often prescribe antibiotics to help resolve infections. However, the use of antibiotics alone doesn’t address the underlying problem.
We can help in the following ways:
- In many cases, we can clear the offending nail spicule/spike in a regular appointment without the need for a more invasive procedure
- We can provide show you how to cut your toenails correctly
- And we can provide guidance on ongoing foot care and correct fitting shoes and socks
If you are struggling with a more chronic problem causing recurring infections and pain, we can also advise and offer a more permanent solution via nail surgery.
