If you are suffering from an ingrown toenail then you know exactly how painful they can be. Luckily Footsteps Clinic provides effective ingrown toenail treatment throughout the Tamworth, Lichfield, Mere Green, and surrounding areas.
An ingrown toenail develops when the sides of the toenail grow into the surrounding skin. This leads to the nail curling and piercing through the skin, which subsequently becomes red, tender and swollen resulting in toe feeling painful when any pressure is put on it.
Ingrown toenails usually occur due to the following:
- incorrectly cut toenails
- tight-fitting shoes, socks or tights
- excessive sweating or poor foot hygiene
- nail infections
- natural shape of the toenail
Fortunately we can treat the ingrown toenail with a simple procedure, however if the problem still persists after treatment then nail surgery is available at Footsteps Clinic.
Our treatments are easily accessible for all customers within Tamworth, Lichfield, Shenstone, Sutton Coldfield, Atherstone and across Staffordshire and the Midlands.
