Nails from time to time can curve as they grow, this over curvature is known as involution. Involution is not classified as true ingrowing toenail however they can be tender and painful especially if hard skin or corns build down the sides of the nail.
If a toenail penetrates the skin this is known as onychocryptosis – a true ingrowing toenail. This is usually extremely painful and will cause localised swelling and redness in the area next to the nail sometimes accompanied by a discharge or pus.

Both involuted and ingrowing nails can be dealt with by your podiatrist. Conservative management is often sufficient. Some nails benefit from toenail surgery performed by a podiatrist under local anaesthesia, whereby a more long term solution can be offered.

At City Foot Health our podiatrist is trained to administer local anesthesia and perform Nail Surgery.
