Ingrown toenails are among the most common conditions that I see in my Houston podiatry office. There are 3 causes of ingrown toenails that most people encounter, which include:
- The toenail growing too wide for the nail bed...meaning, you this is just how you developed
- Improper cutting of the toenail or "bathroom surgery"
- An overzealous pedicurist who got too aggressive
Here's the good news...the procedure to treat an ingrown toenail is simple and quick. Once the toe is numbed, the procedure itself takes 3-5 minutes. It provides instant relief and you are immediately back into your shoes.
If you think you may be suffering from an ingrown toenail, don't wait! Schedule an appointment with Dr. Schneider for immediate relief.
