You Can Trust Your Foot Health to Us
While many ingrown toenails can be treated at home or resolve themselves, there are cases of ingrown toenails that start out as a seemingly small issue and end up becoming a more serious problem. Oftentimes, this happens in conjunction with diabetes, as an ingrown toenail may go unnoticed for too long and cause an infection.
At Advanced Foot & Ankle Wellness Center, we urge you to come in at the first signs of an ingrown toenail. Though this condition may seem like no big deal, we want to make sure that you get the best treatment possible to prevent complications. If you have an ingrown toenail, call us for ingrown toenail treatment in King of Prussia, PA, and the Wayne, PA, area, so that we can help you find relief.
Signs You May Have an Ingrown Toenail
At Advanced Foot & Ankle Wellness Center, we encourage you to come in at the first sign of an ingrown toenail. The most common signs of an ingrown toenail include:
- Tenderness or pain along one or both sides of your toenail
- A red area around your toenail
- Swelling near the sides of your toenail
- Heat coming from the painful or swollen area
- Pus leaking from the reddened area of your toe
When You Should Seek Help for Your Ingrown Toenail
If you have noticed any of the listed signs of an ingrown toenail, even if there is no pain yet, we highly recommend that you come in to be evaluated. As is the nature of a toenail, it may continue to grow, possibly embedding itself further into your toe. When this happens, your risk of complications increases. The most serious complication is an infection. This infection can travel from the toe to the surrounding bone. A bone infection is serious and can cause extreme illness and even death.
As always, if you are diabetic, it is of the utmost importance that you be seen for any foot problem. For you, the risk of infection is higher due to the possibility of poor circulation in your feet. Please be sure to check daily for any swelling or redness around your toenails as neuropathy may prevent you from feeling pain or discomfort.
