Have a problem with ingrown toe nails?
Self-treatment – NOT a good idea!
We see many patients that use online sources for advice and try to self-treat ingrown nails. Many people wait for a while to see a doctor, hoping the problem will go away. These cases are usually more complex, and require treatment with antibiotics. We highly recommend timely evaluation and professional treatment in order to avoid serious complications, including the risk of bone infections, hospitalizations, and long term antibiotic therapy.
Special warning for patients with diabetes: if any sings of redness, swelling, drainage, or pain are noted you need to see a doctor ASAP! Call us and ask for same day appointments, and we will make sure you get proper care.
