What’s wrong with my foot?

Ingrowing toenail?

Does your toenail dig into the side of your toe? Is it painful? Does it bleed?

You might have an ingrowing nail.

I carry out conservative treatments to alleviate painful nails. I can also prescribe antibiotics if you have an infection.

If required, I am able to perform ‘nail surgery’ where the section or whole of the nail can be removed under a local anaesthetic. A chemical is used so that the section or whole of the nail does not grow again.
