Ingrown Toenails

 

Ingrown Toenail Treatment

 

Patient Satisfaction Guaranteed

When your toe begins to grow into the skin at the side of the nail, this is referred to as an ingrown toenail. This can cause quite a bit of pain and discomfort as the nail grows deeper into the skin if it is ignored. If the skin becomes broken by the growth of the toenail, an infection may develop. At the office of Dr. Ava Washko, our Houston podiatrist offers effective and safe treatment options for ingrown toenails.

The causes of ingrown toenails include the following:

  • Tight fitting shoes
  • Ill-fitting shoes
  • Nail fungal infections
  • Loss of a toenail
  • Cutting toenail too short

There are many different symptoms of ingrown toenails, including swelling, redness, warm sensation, and severe pain. It is very important that you come into our office to have your toe treated before an infection develops or spreads. Schedule a consultation when you call us today at (832) 644-9798!
