Our San Antonio foot doctors at San Antonio Podiatry Associates can help with your ingrown toenail.
An ingrown toenail occurs when the edges of the nail plate penetrate into the surrounding soft tissue. Patients may experience uncomfortable irritation, and the area can easily become infected. Bacterial infection can create a red and swollen area, drainage, or pus. Diabetic individuals and those with poor circulation, joint replacements, or pace makers should be aware of the severe impact a simple condition can have on your health. An ingrown toenail can lead to gangrene. You may have attempted to treat ingrown toenails yourself, only to have them reoccur. Our skilled foot doctors in San Antonio, TX can effectively treat your ingrown toenail, with few restrictions after treatment.
