Ingrown toenails are a relatively simple irritation that can lead to infection and bacterial invasion. For diabetics and people who have joint replacements or pacemakers, they can become a danger.
The staff at Great Lakes Foot & Ankle Centers treats ingrown toenails when they are a recurring problem, or if they pose a greater health threat through infection.
The best way to prevent ingrown toenails is to trim your nails with clippers and to cut straight across the nail, to not trim the nail too short, and to wear proper shoes.
When necessary, a minor surgical procedure can remedy the situation.
