How to Treat and Get Rid of an Ingrown Toenail

Ingrown Toenail Home Remedies

Most ingrown nail problems can be prevented with proper grooming of the toes and by wearing better-fitting shoes.

In fact, if you have an ingrown toenail, chances are you can treat it at home, too. Here are some home remedies to try:

  • Soak your feet in warm water. Leave them in there for about 15-20 minutes. You can do this three or four times a day. It’ll make your toe feel less tender and can help with swelling.
  • Put dental floss or a cotton swab under your toenail. Once you’re done soaking your feet, put floss or cotton under the ingrown part of the nail. This will encourage it to grow above the skin.
  • Put on some antibiotic cream. Apply some antibiotic to your toe and wrap it up in a bandage.
  • Pay attention to your shoes. Think about what kind of shoes you’re wearing. If you can, stick with sandals, flip-flops, or other open-toed shoes until your toe heals.
  • Take pain medications. Over-the-counter options like acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or naproxen sodium can ease the pain.

If these home remedies don’t help with your ingrown toenail or you’re worried about it, it’s time to see a doctor. If you notice signs of an infection, like fever or red streaks on your skin leading away from the nail area, let your doctor know. They can prescribe an antibiotic.

If you have diabetes, there’s a higher chance an infected nail won’t heal properly.

Cutting an ingrown toenail

If the steps above don’t help, you shouldn’t try to remove an ingrown nail at home. Let your doctor look at it.

When the toenail grows out, make sure you trim it in a straight line. Don’t cut it too short or round the corners down.

Ingrown Toenail Medical Treatment

Your doctor will look at your toe to see if it’s ingrown. They may:

  • Lift the nail. The doctor might lift the ingrown nail and put a splint under it to relieve some pressure. When you get home, you’ll remove the splint, soak the nail, and put the splint back.
  • Cut away part of the nail. If the doctor has to do this, they’ll numb your toe with a shot first.
  • Remove the whole nail and some tissue. If your ingrown nail keeps coming back, this might be an option. The doctor will numb your toe first with a shot. They might remove the section that’s ingrown or your whole toenail. They may have to destroy the nail bed underneath the area so the nail doesn’t regrow or grows back thinner.

Your doctor might also suggest:

  • Antibiotics. You might need to take antibiotics in the form of a pill or as an ointment to put on your toe.
  • More comfortable shoes. If your shoes put too much pressure on your toes, you could get an ingrown toenail. Make sure you wear wide shoes that fit you and give your toes lots of space to move around.
  • A toe brace. This is a plastic or metal brace that goes over your toenail to relieve pain and pressure.

Sometimes an ingrown nail is caused by a fungus. A doctor can find out if you have a fungus and then offer treatment options.

How to Prevent and Treat Ingrown Toenails – Cleveland Clinic

An ingrown toenail, with the side edge of your nail growing into the skin, can make you painfully aware of a toe you don’t normally notice.

As the nail continues to dig into the skin,
it irritates it, causing pain.

“If an ingrown toenail causes a break in the skin, bacteria can enter and cause an infection, which will make it even more painful. A red, swollen, hot and very painful ingrown toenail is probably infected,” says podiatrist Georgeanne Botek, DPM.

Causes of ingrown toenails

Dr. Botek shares the most common causes of painful ingrown toenails:

Heredity. Many people inherit the tendency to develop ingrown toenails from one or both parents.

Ill-fitting footwear. Crowding your feet into socks and shoes that are too short or tight can set up an environment for painful ingrown toenails to develop. This is why adolescents and teens often get ingrown toenails. “Due to sudden growth spurts and body changes, teens and adolescents may outgrow their footwear quickly and can end up wearing them a while before buying better-fitting shoes,” Dr. Botek says.

Trauma. Occasionally, stubbing or jamming your toe, dropping something on your toe or participating in activities that put repeated pressure on your toes (like running, soccer or ballet) can cause ingrown toenails to develop.

Improper trimming. One of the most common causes of ingrown toenails is cutting them too short. When nails are very short, it encourages the skin at the sides of the nail to fold over it. Don’t be overzealous with the clippers and be sure to cut straight across.

Pedicures. Many women (and increasing numbers of men) enjoy getting pedicures. Nothing wrong with that, but make sure to go to an experienced technician. “Pedicures can cause ingrown nails if the nail technician is overly aggressive in cutting back a toenail,” says podiatrist Dina Stock, DPM.

Poor Circulation. Adults with decreased arterial circulation are more susceptible to ingrowing toenails. If you have diabetes, heart disease, or a long history of tobacco abuse and suffer with repeated ingrown toenails, see your physician or foot and ankle doctor. Also, swelling in your feet and

you can treat your ingrown toenails at home. If your ingrown toenail doesn’t
show any of the signs of infection — swelling, hot to the touch, oozing, foul
odor — you might just try letting the nail grow out.

Soak it and wait.  Dr. Stock suggests soaks in warm water with Epsom salt or a mild detergent, then applying an antibiotic ointment and bandage to the area.

Remove it yourself if there’s no infection. “First soak your feet in a very warm bath with Epsom salt. This softens the skin and reduces inflammation. Using clean nail-cutting tools, you can try to clip the affected area and apply antibiotic ointment afterward,” says Dr. Botek.

See a podiatrist. For an infected ingrown toenail, or if you aren’t sure you can deal with treating yours at home, a podiatrist can perform the procedure under a local anesthetic. “In the office, we can cut out the offending nail border after first numbing the area,” Dr. Stock says. This helps the pain and allows the infection to heal, but may not prevent recurring ingrown toenails.

called the phenol and alcohol matrixectomy.

portion. The chemical phenol is then applied to burn and kill the cells that

Dr. Stock and Dr. Botek offer these suggestions:

  • Avoid cutting nails too short and cutting unevenly at the corners. Cut straight across.
  • Make sure your socks and shoes fit properly. You should be able to wiggle your toes easily in your shoes.
  • Avoid trauma to the toe area. If you run, play soccer or participate in other sports where your toes get a lot of action, try to go barefoot for an hour or two afterward.

Optima Foot and Ankle: Podiatrists

Ingrown toenails are common, affecting as many as 18% of adults in the United States at some point in their life. You may try alleviating the discomfort caused by your ingrown toenail at home.

However, if your home remedies fail to alleviate the swelling and tenderness within 2-3 days, then it’s time to get help from our expert podiatrists at Optima Foot and Ankle in Bend and Redmond, Oregon. Waiting too long increases your risk of developing an infection that requires more serious interventions. 

How did I get an ingrown toenail?

Normally, your toenails grow straight out from your nail bed. If the front edge or side of your toenail curves in and grows into your skin, you have an ingrown toenail. 

An ingrown toenail may develop from many causes, including:

  • Trimming your toenails too short
  • Wearing shoes that pinch or cramp your toes
  • Trauma to the toenail (dropping items on feet, stubbing your toe)
  • Underlying nail condition (fungal infection)
  • Genetics 
  • Congenital defects (nail is too large for the nail bed)

The painful toenail condition may affect any of your toes, but most often affects the big toe.  

The early signs and symptoms of an ingrown toenail

Your initial ingrown toenail symptoms may be mild, causing a twinge of discomfort when you move or squeeze the affected toenail. You may dismiss these symptoms, but early recognition and treatment at this stage may prevent further health complications. 

We recommend at-home treatments, such as:

  • Soaking your toes in warm water up to four times a day
  • Massaging the affected toe to reduce inflammation
  • Keeping your feet and toes dry
  • Wearing comfortable, roomy shoes
  • Over-the-counter pain relievers   

Whatever you do, don’t attempt any “bathroom surgery.” What we mean is, don’t cut your nail or nailbed in an attempt to restore normal growth of your toenail. 

When your ingrown toenail needs help from your podiatrist

If your ingrown toenail fails to improve within 2-3 days of at-home care or your symptoms worsen, you need to contact us so we can help. You also need podiatric intervention if your ingrown toenail is infected. 

Signs and symptoms of an infection include:

  • Redness and swelling
  • Throbbing
  • Feeling pressure under the nail
  • Warm to the touch
  • Foul-smelling
  • Draining fluid or pus

If you have diabetes or another medical condition that reduces circulation in your feet, you’re more prone to developing infections. In such cases, we recommend you skip the at-home care and come in to see us as soon as you develop any signs or symptoms of an ingrown toenail.

Preventing an ingrown toenail

Though genetics may make you more prone to developing an ingrown toenail, improper nail trimming is the most common cause of ingrown toenails, according to the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. You may be able to prevent an ingrown toenail by:

  • Clipping your toenails straight across to encourage a straight-out growing pattern
  • Checking your feet for ingrowing toenails 
  • Trimming toenails before they get too long
  • Wearing shoes with a roomy toe to prevent crowding.  

Ingrown toenails should be treated as soon as they become a noticeable problem. There’s no need to just grin and bear it when we can help. Contact us by phone or online to schedule your consultation.

Ingrown toenails: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Anyone who’s had an ingrown
toenail will know how painful they can be. They can even make walking difficult.
They occur when the edges of the nail curves and grows into surrounding skin,
causing swelling and inflammation. If left untreated, they can also lead to an

Ingrown toenails can happen again and again and mostly on the big toe. We’d recommend you find out why your toenail may be growing inwards. A brief check up at our clinic will determine the cause and help you understand how to prevent them.

As a point of interest,
the scientific name for ingrown toenails is onychocryptosis, not a word you often
come across! Onycho- nail, crypto-hidden which is hidden nail.

What causes ingrown toenails?

The causes of ingrown
toenails are most often due to:

  • Cutting your toenails
    too short – they should be over the skin, not nestled into the skin
  • Rounded nail edges – these
    have more opportunity to grow into the skin
  • Tight fitting shoes –
    causing the toes to rub against the shoe
  • Stubbing your toe and
    injuring the nailbed
  • Repeated activity that
    creates constant friction on the toe such as running or ballet
  • Genetics – this can
    also determine whether you get ingrown toenails due to the shape of the nail
    and nailbed

Self-help – what you can do at home

We’d always recommend
that you pop into the clinic to treat an ingrown toenail as they are prone to infection
which can get worse if not handled properly. But if you can’t make it into the
clinic, you might like to try the following:

For prevention:

  • Trim the nails straight
    across so that the edges protrude from the skin
  • Don’t trim the nails
    too short, leave them a little a little longer so they don’t lay directly into the
  • Wear proper fitting shoes
    and avoid any friction or rubbing on the toes

For pain relief:

  • Soak your toenail in
    Epsom salts or soapy water for 15 minutes, this reduces swelling and inflammation
  • Apply an antiseptic
    or antibacterial cream to the toe
  • Tuck bits of cotton or dental floss underneath
    the ingrown toenail to lift the corner of your nail and help it grow outward
  • Wear loose fitting
    shoes to give the toe plenty of room
  • Wear a toe protector which
    provides a cushion for the big toe against anything that might rub it make the ingrown
    toenail worse. You can buy these from the chemist.

How we help at our podiatry clinic (Adelaide, Mount Barker and Stirling)

We’ll determine how severely
your toenail has grown into the skin and whether there is any infection. We’ll
then treat the ingrown toenail by lifting the nail and placing cotton underneath
to give it room to breathe and grow outward. We may also have to partially or
fully remove the toenail if there is extensive infection, to help the nailbed
heal before a new nail grows again.

Whatever path of
treatment we take, our gentle podiatrists will ensure you experience little no discomfort.

Don’t put up with ingrown toenails, let our podiatrists help you

You don’t need to put
up with an ingrown toenail or allow it to continue re-occurring. If untreated,
they can become severely infected and permanently damage the surrounding tissues.
This can lead to more problems with that toenail in the future.

Ingrown toenails are treatable and can be prevented. Call into our podiatry clinic and our gentle and experienced podiatrists who work with children, adults and the elderly, will help you.

Signs Your Ingrown Toenail is Infected

An ingrown toenail is a common condition anyone can experience. It occurs when the jagged edge of the nail grows into the side of the nail bed, piercing the skin. 

Eventually, the nail grows back into the skin, resulting in pain, inflammation and overall discomfort. It can happen to any toe, but is most often experienced in the big toe. 

An untreated ingrown toenail can eventually lead to an infection, which can subsequently spread through the bone structure of the foot and result in substantial pain. Diabetics in particular are at higher risk.

Therefore, knowing the signs and symptoms of an ingrown toenail infection is important. Read on to learn more:

Signs of an Ingrown Toenail Infection

An infected ingrown toenail can include any or all of the following symptoms:

  • Oozing or built up fluid around the affected area
  • Bleeding
  • Foul smell
  • Heat or warmth in or around the nail bed
  • Overgrowth or presence of inflamed tissues around the edges of the toenail
  • Yellowing, thick or cracked nails (specifically with fungus infections)
  • An abscess filled with puss, located where the jagged edge of the nail is puncturing the skin
  • Throbbing
  • Pain in and around the toe
  • Swelling
  • Pressure under the toenail
  • Hardening or redness around the affected toenail

The Danger of an Infected Ingrown Toenail

There are two types of infections that can occur in the case of an ingrown toenail: bacterial and fungal infection. Either variety can become problematic, but bacterial infections like Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), commonly known as a Staph infection, is antibiotic resistant and dangerous. 

This type of infection moves beyond impacting the immediate area of the toenail and can even spread into the bone. A serious Staph infection often requires weeks of intravenous antibiotics and in some severe cases, even surgery to treat. Therefore, at the first sign of an infected toenail, it’s vital for you to seek treatment or try some home remedies.

How to Treat Your Infected Toenail

Instead of dragging your feet, address your infected toenail as soon as possible to prevent the infection from spreading and becoming a dangerous medical issue. 

At Home Remedies to Reduce Infection in an Ingrown Toenail

If you want to attempt to treat an infected ingrown toenail yourself at home, keep the following tips in mind:

  • Sanitize. Before beginning any home treatment, make sure your hands are clean.
  • Be gentle. Don’t pull or yank on your nail. Don’t force the skin around your toe to move.
  • Take a soak. Soak the foot in warm water and Epsom salts in order to soften the infected area. This will also reduce your pain and encourage puss drainage.
  • Fight infection. Apply antifungal or antibiotic lotion to the skin around and directly on the skin, under the nail and around the nail bed.
  • Medicate. To reduce symptoms of swelling and discomfort, take over-the-counter medication for pain.

Try these home remedies for at the most a few days. If you do not notice a significant improvement in your symptoms, it’s time to plan a visit to the podiatrist.

In Office Treatments

The following are the most likely treatment options for an infected ingrown toenail:

A Toenail Lift

If the infected nail is only slightly ingrown, meaning the nail hasn’t buried itself deep into the side of your toe, we might be able to simply lift the edge of the nail. After it is lifted, we can place a splint, dental floss, or cotton underneath the nail to separate it from the toe. 

This option changes the way your toenail grows, encouraging it to extend above the edge of the skin. This treatment option will need to be performed daily at home, meaning you will need to replace the material daily after soaking your toe.

Partial Nail Removal

If your infected toenail is more severe, a partial removal of your toenail might be the best course of action. This procedure involves our professionals numbing the area in and around the ingrown nail, then removing the ingrown portion of your nail.

Tissue or Full Nail Removal

A severely infected ingrown toenail or an ingrown nail that has grown that way time and time again demands a more aggressive approach. During this procedure, a podiatrist will remove the portion of the nail that is ingrown as well as the underlying tissue or nail bed.  

The doctor will usually also apply a chemical to the area that will impede nail growth and reduce the risk of recurrence. Of course, before the process begins, they will numb your toe to make the procedure as painless as possible. 

After the procedure, the doctor will wrap it up and give you post-surgical instructions to properly care for the area. Here at Foot & Ankle, we often want to see you two-weeks after your procedure to ensure your toe is healing properly and is no longer infected.

We sometimes recommend the use of oral or topical antibiotics in the case of a substantial ingrown toenail infection, but this is not common.

Lifestyle Changes to Prevent Recurrence

To reduce your risk of experiencing an ingrown toenail and subsequent infection ever again, embrace the lifestyle changes listed below:

  • Wear properly fitted shoes. Your shoes should give your toes adequate room to move around and not jam together. Read our blog “5 Shoe Shopping Tips for Finding the Right Fit” for tips straight from our podiatrists.
  • Trim toenails properly. Never cut your toenails too short or at a diagonal. Trim your toenails straight across to prevent the nail from growing improperly into your nail bed. Diabetics in particular need to be cautious when trimming their toes.
  • Skip the pedicure. We have an article all about why most salons breed infections and how to prevent them— all while still caring for your toenails. Check it out: “10 Ways to Avoid Pedicure Infections.”
  • Seek advice. If you have poor circulation in your feet or have other risk factors for ingrown toenails, you should get regular checkups to ensure optimal foot health

Maybe infection isn’t your problem, but that dreaded ingrown nail won’t go away. If you’ve had an ingrown toenail before, you may be surprised to learn that you can help to prevent recurrence. Check out our article on “6 Ways to Keep an Ingrown Nail From Growing Back” for more specific advice.

Great Lakes Foot and Ankle Institute: Podiatrists

Because ingrown toenails are common, many people don’t think they’re a big deal. However, ingrown toenails can be quite painful, and they can even lead to infection, which can cause a variety of health problems.  

Ingrown toenails should never be ignored. You should always make an appointment for a professional evaluation. In this blog, the providers at Great Lakes Foot and Ankle Institute explain why ingrown toenails occur and why they should be treated.

Why ingrown toenails occur

Ingrown toenails most commonly affect the big toes. An ingrown toenail occurs when the edge of a nail begins to poke through the skin and grows into the delicate tissue near it. Children and teens are most at risk for getting ingrown toenails, although they can happen at any age.

The most common cause of getting an ingrown toenail is cutting toenails improperly. Nails should be trimmed straight across, rather than rounded at the edges. Other causes include the following:

  • Wearing tight-fitting shoes, especially high heels or other shoes that pinch the toes
  • Injuring a toe, such as by dropping a heavy object on it or playing soccer
  • Having a family history of ingrown toenails
  • Having a fungal infection, which can widen or thicken a nail

Symptoms of an ingrown toenail

Ingrown toenails present some telltale symptoms. The most common one is pain. Other symptoms include the following:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Warm to the touch
  • Discomfort while walking
  • Pus, especially as the ingrown toenail gets worse

Why you shouldn’t ignore an ingrown toenail

When left untreated, an ingrown toenail can lead to infection. This can lead to worsening pain and even fever. In some cases, an untreated ingrown toenail can spread the infection to the bone beneath the nail. And, if the infection continues to be left untreated, it can even enter the bloodstream and cause a serious condition, such as sepsis or gangrene.

If you have diabetes, you’re at greater risk for developing complications from ingrown toenails. Because of this, people with diabetes need to pay special attention to the care and condition of their feet.

Until you’re able to see a medical provider, soak your foot in an Epsom salt bath. This may provide some relief. And wear cotton socks and loose slippers or shoes to put as little pressure as possible on the affected toe.

How we treat ingrown toenails

We see patients with ingrown toenails on a regular basis, and treatment is usually simple and quick. 

First, we numb your toe. Then we lift out the ingrown part of the nail. We may also trim away the offending part of the nail. If the same nail repeatedly grows into your toe, we may remove the entire nail and let a new one grow in correctly.

If you have an ingrown toenail, we can treat your condition and give you relief quickly. To learn more, book an appointment over the phone with Great Lakes Foot and Ankle Institute today.

9 Ingrown Toenail Remedies You Can Do at Home

Ingrown toenails that are not showing signs of infection can be treated at home. There are ingrown toenail remedies for mild cases that only need simple treatment.

Health care professionals do not recommend treating an infected ingrown toenail. Never attempt to lift your ingrown toenail with cotton or dental floss. This could only introduce bacteria into the affected area.

You should see your foot and ankle doctor (podiatrist) if:

  • home remedies do not work for you
  • you have poor circulation (poor blood flow) or
  • you have diabetes

Ingrown toenail treatment for serious cases done by a foot and ankle podiatric surgeon include:

  • lifting the nail
  • partially removing the nail and
  • removing the nail and tissue

Safe and Effective Ingrown Toenail Home Remedies

1. Warm, Soapy Water Soak

Soaking your affected foot in warm, soapy water may help ease pain and reduce swelling. You should do this 3 times daily for up to 20 minutes. Adding a small amount of liquid Castile soap may bring extra relief.

Be sure to dry your foot rigorously after soaking.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar Soak

Apple cider vinegar is considered a folk remedy for a majority of ailments these days. And this includes ingrown nails. Apple cider vinegar is known to have anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and pain-relieving properties.

However, scientific evidence for apple cider vinegar as a remedy to common ailments is limited at best.

You can try to treat an ingrown nail by soaking your affected foot in a bucket or basin of warm water mixed with a ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar. Do this for up to 20 minutes daily.

Remember to always dry your foot thoroughly once you are done with the soaking.

3. Epsom Salt Soak

Epsom salts contain high amounts of magnesium which is known to fight inflammation according to a study. Such a soak provides relief from the swelling and pain of your affected foot.

In a wide bucket or basin, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of Epsom salt per quart of warm water. Soak your foot and gently massage the affected skin area downward. Do this 2 to 3 times every day for 15 to 20 minutes.

4. Hydrogen Peroxide Soak

Hydrogen peroxide is another great option to treat ingrown toenails at home. It is a natural disinfectant, which is the reason why it is commonly used to clean wounds.

Soak your infected foot in a bucket of water and hydrogen peroxide solution for 15 to 20 minutes. Do this 2 to 3 times daily. Make sure to add at least 3% of hydrogen peroxide for every half cup of warm water.

Overcrowding your toes by wearing ill-fitting shoes is one of the leading causes of ingrown toenails. You can prevent an ingrown from developing in your big toe by wearing comfortable shoes.

Be sure to pick better-fitting shoes that have enough space for your toes. Comfortable footwear should allow you to wiggle your toes.

During the healing process, wear sandals instead of shoes to prevent pressure on your inflamed toenails.

6. Using Toe Protectors

You should consider wearing toe protectors if your day-to-day activities require you to wear shoes all the time.

Toe protectors provide a soft, protective barrier between your toes and your shoes. They are usually stretch-to-fit caps made from elastic materials.

7. Taking Oral Antibiotics

Doctors do not usually prescribe oral antibiotics for mild cases of ingrown toenails. There has been no proof that oral antibiotics can improve the condition.

Still, you may need oral antibiotics if you have a weakened immune system. Also, if your ingrown nail shows signs of infection such as:

  • foul odour
  • presence of pus
  • throbbing pain
  • increased redness
  • increased swelling
  • warmth in and around the affected toe

Common antibiotics used to treat an ingrown toenail are:

  • Amoxicillin
  • Flucloxacillin
  • Cephalexin
  • Erythromycin

8. Taking OTC Pain Relievers

To counter pain caused by an ingrown nail, you can take an over-the-counter pain reliever. One example is Panadol, which is paracetamol. Be sure to take only the recommended daily amount of 3,000 milligrams to avoid side effects.

Nurofen is ibuprofen and is a better solution if there is pain and swelling. Common side effects of ibuprofen include:

  • diarrhoea
  • upset stomach and
  • abdominal pain

Voltaren is diclofenac and it can also help ease the pain in your toes. Both of these drugs are called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications and all of them can cause stomach and bowel upset.

9. Applying Antibiotic Ointments

Applying an antibiotic ointment or cream is one of those ingrown toenail remedies that help reduce the risk of infection. It can also promote healing of your infected toe. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and bandage your toe after applying the ointment.

Antibiotic ointments you can use to treat ingrown toenails include:

90,000 Why does a nail grow in and how to effectively treat an ingrown toenail?

An ingrown toenail (onychocryptosis) is an ingrowth of the nail plate into the lateral edge of the nail fold (most often on the big toe, most often the outer edge). This is a very common disease. In this case, the nail fold becomes red and swollen, inflammation begins, causing severe pain. In the future, the development of a chronic inflammatory process is possible.

Causes of ingrown toenail

External causes

  • Incorrectly executed manicure or pedicure

Accidentally cut off the corner of the nail with nail scissors, left a burr or a sharp edge.They rubbed the skin around the nail with the edge of the scissors, or cut the nail plate too short. These reasons provoke ingrowth in 95% of cases.

  • Heavy leg load

Obesity, pregnancy and the puerperium.

  • Narrow uncomfortable shoes

Unsuitable shoes, if still with high heels and tight tights, gradually squeeze and deform the nail.


  • Flat feet and valgus feet

Flatness – a change in the shape of the foot, characterized by the omission of its longitudinal and transverse arches.Valgus of the feet is a disease in which the thumb is displaced outward, and the bone with which the finger forms a joint, on the contrary, is displaced inward.

  • Malnutrition, diabetes mellitus, vascular and heart disease, all kinds of endocrine pathologies.
  • Performing radiation or chemical therapy for oncology.
  • Fungus.

Fungus is a lesion of the nail plate, called onychomycosis.Disease-causing microorganisms thrive best in warm and humid environments, so onychomycosis develops more often on the toes than on the hands.

  • Frostbite, mechanical damage to fingers.
  • Skin diseases (psoriasis, lichen, warts, etc.).
  • Excess in the subungual soft tissue cushion.

Ingrown nail treatment

Treatment by nail service specialists

Redness, swelling, deformation – all these symptoms indicate that you can turn to a nail service specialist for treatment of an ingrown nail.

Correction methods:

  • Capolin installation (treatment and prevention)

Capolin is a synthetic, hypoallergenic tissue for ingrown nail tamponade, which serves as a kind of shock absorber between the side wall of the ingrown nail and the lotral sinus.

This non-woven material is impregnated with a special solution that does not allow bacteria to multiply in it and can be installed in places of inflammation and stays there without replacement for 28 days (provided that the client observes basic hygiene procedures).

It is installed under the growing nail, protecting it from pressure of the nail plate on the inflamed skin area. And subsequently the marigold “comes out” along the capolin, as if along the rails to a normal length, no longer ingrowing.

BS-plates are an effective tool that allows you to painlessly and without surgery to correct an ingrown nail and solve this problem. BS-plate is an elastic plate made of duroplasts and fiberglass. It is installed directly on the nail using special glue in a few seconds.

  • Fraser Staple

The Fraser Brace is a corrective system for treating ingrown nails. The brace is fixed to the nail and prevents ingrowth by aligning the corners of the nail plate and bringing them out.

  • Prosthetics of the nail plate

Prosthetics of nails is the formation of artificial nails or their parts, as well as the strengthening of damaged nail plates using special materials.

  • Recommendations for home care for professional cosmetics: baths, creams, softeners and nail oil.

Treatment with a surgeon

Painful throbbing, purulent discharge, ulcers, excess tissue growth around the nail, a decrease in length and an increase in the density of the plate – all these symptoms indicate a protracted illness.

  • Resection of the nail plate

picks a finger near a nail on a hand or toe

An abscess or suppuration on a finger near the nail is a dangerous disease of felon.This is an inflammation of the soft tissues of the periungual region – the cuticle or lateral ridges, caused by the action of pathogenic bacteria. It often happens that the focus of inflammation spreads deeper and goes under the entire nail plate, affecting the bone tissue.

Types of disease

There are several types of disease.

At the place of localization, allocate:

  • abscess under the nail on the hand
  • suppuration under the nail on the feet

By the area or volume of the lesion, suppuration can be:

  • focal if only one finger is affected.
  • is extensive, if several fingers are affected at once.
  • with the simultaneous formation of an abscess under the toenails and hands, one can judge the general sepsis of the body, a decrease in immunity and its weakening.
  • Causes of suppuration

    There are a lot of reasons provoking an abscess of a finger near the nail, below are the main ones:

    • Violation of personal hygiene rules. On the hands in the area of ​​the free edge of the nails, a large number of bacteria accumulate, for the removal of which special means are needed.The feet remain in closed shoes for quite a long time, and these are optimal conditions for the development of bacteria and microbes. This is why an abscess is most common around the toenail.
    • Microtrauma of the skin around the nail, trauma to the nail plate can cause suppuration and abscess of the finger near the nail.
    • Working around the house, cleaning the apartment or in the country without using gloves can also lead to injury, which means that an abscess may form on the finger near the nail.
    • Onychocryptosis (ingrown nail). Ingrown toenails can lead to an abscess near the nail without the proper attention of a specialist.

    How to treat an abscess under the nail?

    If you notice that you are picking up a finger near the nail and upon self-examination you see redness, the finger has increased in volume, and when you press on it, you feel severe pain, then you should see a specialist as soon as possible. The inflammatory process can proceed and develop very quickly, penetrating deep into healthy tissues.


    Purulent-inflammatory diseases of the foot and hand occupy one of the leading places in outpatient surgical practice. The foot and hand with their complex structure and diverse functions play an extremely important role in the practical activity of a person; the person’s ability to work, the degree of his social adaptation and the quality of life directly depend on their functional state. In other words, how we will walk, live, work.The surgeons of our hospital have vast accumulated experience in treating patients with purulent-inflammatory diseases of the foot and hand. Some surgeons have been and are conducting scientific work in such pathologies. For consultation and treatment, you can always contact our doctors at the following addresses Narodnaya st., 8/1 and Kommunarov ave., 8, telephone for inquiries 74-50-64. Inflammatory processes with signs of suppuration on the feet are quite common. It is this area that is most often injured, and any untreated wound becomes an “open door” for bacteria and viruses.An ingrown toenail is a common problem for many people. It is a disease in which a nail on the other side of the hand or foot grows into the skin of the toe. In medicine, this disease is called “onychocryptosis”. This is a very unpleasant phenomenon, firstly, because of severe pain, and secondly, because of its completely unaesthetic appearance. Ingrown toenails more often occur on the big toe, although there are cases with the rest of the nails, but extremely rarely.

    Causes of ingrown toenail

    Experts believe that the cause of an ingrown toenail is only improper cutting.This may be the main cause of toenail ingrown toenails, but there may actually be more toenails.

    These include reasons such as:

    1. Wearing too tight, uncomfortable shoes. As a result of squeezing the toes, the nail plate is pressed into the nail fold, which causes permanent injury to the skin

    2. Hereditary onychocryptosis. The wrong shape of the nail, which is inherited, can also be one of the reasons why toenails grow in.

    3. Fungal nail infections that cause thickening of the nail and deformity that promotes ingrowth of the nail into the finger.

    4. Injury. Ingrown toenails can be caused by a thumb injury – a direct blow, a fall from a heavy object, or walking on your fingertips.

    5. Individual features of the structure: more rounded nails, too curved underlying bone or increased exfoliation of the dermis.

    The main symptoms of an ingrown toenail are:

    • painful sensations at the edges of the nail bed;

    • occurrence of finger swelling;

    • redness of the affected area;

    • thickening of the nail plate;

    • discoloration of the nail, the appearance of spots and stripes;

    • soreness when pressing on the finger;

    • occurrence of suppuration, which can develop into a chronic form.

    As a result of the progressive inflammatory process, the nail loses its natural shine, begins to flake off and becomes thicker from the edge.

    If the process has gone far, then you have to resort to surgical methods of removing the ingrown nail. Operations are performed under local anesthesia. There are several methods of operations

    In our hospital, a technique is used to remove the nail plate in whole or in part. At the same time, the overgrown granulations are removed and the plastic of the periungual roller is performed.

    The operations and treatment of these patients are carried out by experienced highly qualified surgeons of our hospital. After surgical treatment, dynamic monitoring of the patient’s condition is carried out, dressings are made and the necessary additional treatment is prescribed.

    Removal of an ingrown nail in Yekaterinburg – MC “Olmed”

    An ingrown nail is an ingrowth of the lateral part of the nail plate into the nail roller. Most often, the nail on the thumb is prone to ingrowth.The disease is accompanied by severe pain and redness of the skin, and the site of ingrowth becomes inflamed. The pain increases significantly when walking.


    • Incorrect pedicure (cutting corners of toenails)
    • Injuries to feet, toes
    • Tight, tight shoes
    • Fungus on the feet
    • Socks or tights with a rigid seam at toe level
    • Hereditary form of nails and nail folds

    Stages of ingrowth

    1. Redness, swelling and pain.
    2. Infection joins. An ingrown nail behaves like a foreign body, swelling and suppuration appears.
    3. The nail phalanx is deformed, the disease becomes irreversible.


    At the first stage, conservative treatment of an ingrown nail is possible, but it is very long and in this case there is a high probability of relapse. The surgeons of the MC “OLMED” recommend an operative method of treating an ingrown toenail.

    During surgery for an ingrown nail, the nail plate is resected with the removal of the ingrown nail area, as well as the reversal of the nail fold.This operation is an alternative to removing the entire nail plate, as well as the prevention of recurrence of ingrowth. In addition to the operation, the surgeon of the MC “OLMED” conducts an explanatory conversation with the patient on how to avoid ingrowth, how to properly care for the legs and nails.

    The operation is performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis and takes a maximum of 30 minutes. After the operation, the patient is observed for half an hour and goes home. Further observation and dressings are also carried out on an outpatient basis and do not require hospitalization.If the suture technique is used during the operation, the sutures are removed for 5-7 days.

    In the MC “OLMED” the cosmetic aspect of the operation is also provided. Scars on the finger are hardly noticeable and do not cause discomfort to the patient.

    Prevention of ingrown nail:

    • Cutting toenails in a straight line, not obliquely
    • Wearing comfortable shoes that fit the size

    Occasional wear of open-toed shoes (sandals, sandals, flip-flops, etc.)and walking barefoot.

    Is it possible to cure an ingrown toenail on your own?

    Self-treatment or cutting an ingrown nail can cause serious complications in the form of purulent inflammation of the phalanx of the finger, soft tissue necrosis and subsequent amputation. Self-treatment of onychocryptosis of an ingrown nail is extremely dangerous for patients with diabetes mellitus, varicose veins, and atherosclerosis of the vessels of the lower extremities. with a high blood sugar level, the patient’s immunity is greatly reduced, blood circulation is also impaired, all this leads to the rapid development of infection. As a result, the recovery period is significantly slowed down. And improper self-treatment of this problem can lead to more serious health problems.

    What is the cause of the ingrown toenail?

    • Non-professional manicure in the salon;
    • Inflammatory diseases, abscesses;
    • Improper nail care, excessive deep cutting of nails;
    • Wearing tight shoes that cause strong pressure of the nail plate on the nail roller;
    • Hereditary predisposition;
    • Injuries to toes or nail plate;
    • Fungal infections of nails;
    • Severe deviation of the direction of the thumb inward or outward with transverse flat feet;
    • Large static or dynamic loads, overweight.

    What is the danger of an ingrown nail if it is not treated

    An ingrown toenail by itself causes pain and severe discomfort when walking. In addition, more serious complications may subsequently develop: finger abscess, osteomyelitis, gangrene.

    Elena, Minsk region.

    – Nail plate ingrown into the skin, or onychocryptosis, a common disease. In addition to the fact that the foot acquires an unaesthetic appearance, a person is worried about pain while walking in closed shoes. More often than not, the nail starts to cut into the big toe or little toe.

    There are factors contributing to this process. One of the main ones is the wrong pedicure. If you trim the edges of your nail too much, there is a good chance that sooner or later it will start bothering you. You need to cut your nails using rounded scissors, after water steaming procedures that make the nail plate soft, and after cutting off the nail, carefully file it with a file. Heredity plays a role. If your closest relatives (mother, father, grandparents) have this problem, then you may also be predisposed to it.In addition, a fungal infection contributes to the growth of several layers of the nail plate and its ingrowth – then the nail looks yellow, thick. So don’t forget about hygiene. Narrow uncomfortable shoes, squeezing the leg where the toes are, sweating when wearing poor-quality shoes, and a serious foot injury are also predisposing factors. Remember, not noticing the symptoms in time and not preventing the development of the process, you run the risk of facing swelling of the finger, the appearance of wounds on it, suppuration, bleeding, abscess, osteomyelitis and even tetanus.

    At the first sign of ingrowth, consult a doctor who will prescribe the necessary treatment. The sooner you do this, the higher the chance that the recovery will be quick and painless. Running cases require surgery. If the problem has just emerged and you really want to try to get rid of it yourself, you can try folk remedies. Say, dilute a little potassium permanganate in hot water, steam your leg in the resulting solution, then wrap your finger with mashed plantain leaves.Bandage, put on a sock. The bandage must be changed once a day. Alternatively, a decoction with chamomile or St. John’s wort. Pour 6 tbsp. l herbs with two liters of boiling water, let it brew for an hour. Then strain the broth and heat again. Make yourself a bath. This will help soften the nail plate so that the ingrown portion can be removed later. Another method. Put a fingertip with butter on the problem area in the evening, on top – a sock and leave it until morning. Or crush an aloe leaf, add 30 drops of water, mix thoroughly. Dip gauze in the liquid, attach to the nail, bandage the leg with a dry bandage and close it with cling film on top so that its edges go beyond the bandage. Make a compress overnight, but keep it for no more than six hours. In the morning, you can easily get rid of the ingrown part. Salt, soda and furacillin (a tablet per liter of water) baths will help relieve inflammation, contribute to the natural release of pus. An ointment made from a tablespoon of garlic gruel, onion, aloe, butter and a teaspoon of honey will help well.All this must be boiled for several minutes, and then applied in the form of a compress. A night compress made with Vishnevsky’s ointment is also suitable.

    But if you see that mild pain is replaced by an inflammatory process, then give up home experiments. The doctor will tamponade or place a brace, depending on the severity of the case. By delaying the visit to the doctor, you risk catching an infection, and then you will have to inject antibiotics. But it is better to entrust the child’s ingrown toenail to the doctor right away.

    There is such a modern painless procedure as laser correction of an ingrown nail. It is performed under local anesthesia. The method is good in that the laser acts pointwise without disturbing the nail plate as a whole. Due to the evaporation of soft tissues, their cauterization, the likelihood of a return of the disease is small. The procedure takes no more than 15 minutes, and the recovery period is up to ten days. Other methods are cheaper, but just as effective at solving the problem. So, correcting with acrylic gel can help you when the edges of the nail “rise” to prevent ingrowth.Treatment with phenol, which involves the destruction of growth cells of the nail plate. The radio wave method, when the nail is cut with a scalpel, and then the germ zone is treated with radio waves for six seconds. All these methods allow you to quickly recover: the maximum healing time is two weeks. However, the very next day, it is allowed to wear loose shoes.

    Ingrown nail correction

    Ingrown or curled nail

    Ingrown and curled nails can cause different causes.

    They can be equally as a result of genetic factors, and – external and internal influences.

    Of course, shoes play an extremely important role and become the most common cause of ingrown toenails and their recurrence.

    Not only are the tight, high-heeled shoes worn by modern, fashion-conscious women, but the youthful athletic shoes are also conducive to ingrown toenails. Regardless, people don’t realize that sometimes they just need to change their shoes.

    Factors contributing to ingrown and curling nails:

    1. Incorrect nail care and rounding of the corners of the nails when trimming!
    2. Disorders of their growth.
    3. Incorrect leg shape (Pes valgus).
    4. Too long fingers.
    5. Diabetic foot.
    6. Crossing fingers (digitus superductus).
    7. Sports or work footwear.


    This system helps to solve the problem of an ingrown or curled nail! Attaches to the nail plate in order to straighten it with constant and even pressure, this is especially important to prevent the nail from peeling off the nail bed!

    The alloy of titanium and nickel has a memory – after fixing on the nail, the bracket begins to strive for its original shape (narrows), pulling the edges of the nail towards itself, lifting them out of the skin. Thus, pain and inflammation go away, over time, a healthy nail is formed, which is not prone to ingrowth.

    Podiatrists of the MedLine network of clinics choose the brace of the required diameter, depending on the thickness of the nail plate and the required degree of impact on it.


    Staples do not have an immediate effect, the process is gradual, but this is the essence of the treatment. The nail itself takes on the desired shape, relapses are extremely rare. The success of the brace depends on two main factors: quality material and a qualified technician who installed the system and supervises its operation.If both conditions are met correctly, you can forget about the problem of an ingrown toenail.
    Depending on the severity of the problem of ingrown or curled nails, different therapeutic measures can be taken in each case.

    Tamponing of nails

    Gutta-percha (natural rubber), synthetic material, Sulci – protectors (very flexible plastic tubing), fleece materials, gauze impregnated with a biologically active substance, or compresses.


    Various braces that correct or straighten nails.


    The ingrown toenail should be relieved immediately so that neither pressure nor friction painful the problem area. Wide shoes are also unacceptable.

    Drug treatment

    Drug treatment is required for tissue granulation. This treatment should be carried out by a specialist.
