Treatment

For mild cases the offending nail can be trimmed and the sharp painful piece of the nail can be removed. If it is too painful, a local anesthetic can be used so the procedure is painless. Then an aseptic bandage is applied. However, since ingrown nails tend to return so regular, trimming and treatment may be required. If the problem continues to persist in the nail, there is a surgical option that is more permanent. This procedure can be done in the office. The toe is numbed with a local anesthetic and the nail (partial or whole nail) is then removed and an acid treatment is performed to the root of the nail which prevents it from growing back.

If you think you may have an ingrown nail or have any questions regarding treatment options, you can easily make an appointment with the doctors of Atlantic Foot and Ankle Specialists at any of our five locations, Savannah, Hinesville, Statesboro, Claxton, or Bluffton.
