Ingrown Toenail Treatment in Wappingers Falls, NY
Don’t Let Pain Stop You From Enjoying the Activities You Love
You notice that the side of your big toe feels a little sore, and maybe there’s some redness there. Perhaps you researched your symptoms and decide that you have an ingrown toenail. No big deal, right? Wrong. If you believe you need ingrown toenail treatment in Wappingers Fall, NY our experienced podiatry team at Hollowbrook Foot Specialists, P.C. is here to help you find relief—so you can return to doing the things you enjoy.
Better Safe Than Sorry
An ingrown toenail may sometimes be no big deal, but under certain circumstances, it can become a huge 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. It’s best to err on the side of safety and see a podiatrist.
If you have diabetes, this risk is even higher, as diabetics may have poor blood circulation or be unable to feel pain or discomfort due to peripheral neuropathy.
At Hollowbrook Foot Specialists, P.C. we highly recommend that you come in if you notice any of the following symptoms:
- Redness around your toenail
- Pain and/or tenderness around one or both sides of your toenail
- Heat emanating from the painful area of your toe
- Swelling and redness next to the nail
- Pus draining from the red area of your toe
Your Feet Shouldn’t Be In Pain
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 specialist. 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 podiatrist as soon as possible to avoid further pain and potential complications.
