You With . . .
Let’s say that you notice that the side of your big toe feels a little sore and maybe there’s some redness there. Perhaps you type your symptoms into Dr. Google and decide that you have an ingrown toenail. No big deal, right?
Sometimes an ingrown toenail may actually be no big deal, but under certain circumstances, it can become a very big deal. In fact, if left untreated and allowed to grow and embed itself further into your toe, an ingrown toenail can result in a bone infection or even blood toxicity when it breaks the skin, especially if you also have toenail fungus or athlete’s foot. Both of those conditions can become life-threatening.
At Advanas Foot & Ankle Specialists, we highly recommend that you come in if you notice any of the following symptoms:
Even if you don’t have diabetes, an ingrown toenail can be extremely uncomfortable and affect your gait. Ultimately, your best option is to be seen by a foot doctor. In some cases, simple home treatments may be all you need, but if you’ve tried home remedies for your ingrown toenail and they haven’t worked, we highly recommend seeing our foot doctor as soon as possible to avoid further pain and potential complications.
At Advanas Foot & Ankle Specialists, we take a consultative approach, which means we partner with you to ultimately offer the best possible treatment options for your ingrown toenail.
