Ingrown Nails

painful toesSometimes our nails can become ingrown. These can become very painful and cause a lot of distress. Or sometimes they are an irritation that never seems to go away. A Lewisham Foot Health we treat your ingrown nails by giving you a local anaesthetic into the toe. This way you will have no pain when the nail is reduced at the side.
Depending on the presentation of your toe nail, we might decide together to have nail surgery. This is where a chemical is applied to the side of the nail to stop the nail from becoming ingrown again. This is a one hour procedure and takes a few weeks to heal. Please enquire if you have more questions.
