Ingrown Toenail Treatment

Expert Treatment for Ingrown Toenails

An ingrown toenail occurs when the side of the nail cuts and continues to grow into the surrounding skin in the area. This can become very painful and inflamed and if left untreated, can result in infection or an affected gait. If you have developed an ingrown toenail, Active Feet are here to help with the leading ingrowing toenail treatment in Edinburgh. The majority of the time it is the big toe that is affected however any toe can become ingrown and cause problems.

There are several reasons that you can develop an ingrowing toenail including poor nail cutting, badly fitted footwear, poor foot hygiene, and it can even be down to an inherited nail shape that is prone to this condition. Symptoms commonly include swelling, pain, redness, and heat but can develop into bleeding, further swelling, pus, and an infection if not treated. In severe cases, the infection can spread to the bone.

When seeking ingrowing toenail treatment in Edinburgh, our podiatrists will outline the most suitable option for treatment, whether that is a prescribed course of antibiotics, bathing in saline solution, removal of a small section of the nail, or removal of the entire nail. In the event of opting for entire nail removal for your ingrown toe treatment, the operation will be performed under local anaesthetic and your podiatrist will prevent the nail from growing back. This is because the toenail typically grows back in a worst state than the one that has been removed.

Following toenail removal surgery, we will have three further consultations to ensure that you are getting the best care after toenail removal, so you are back up and running as fast as possible.

Can’t recommend Active Feet highly enough, their service is friendly, efficient and organised. Calvin in particular really helped me to resolve the issue I had with my foot. His assessment was thorough, treatment plan well-explained, and he was really friendly and personable.

I've had 2 appointments with Calvin and he has improved my walking and pain through the use of orthotics and exercises. I'm really impressed by the thorough assessment and follow up and the results I've had. This has been a hugely positive experience and Calvin and reception team are very professional and friendly. Would highly recommend

After spending a lot of time and money trying off the shelf orthotics, a couple of visits to Calvin at Active Feet, and professionally modified insoles, appears to have sorted the problem. I can't recommend him highly enough.

I cannot recommend this place highly enough. My son who is autistic had problems with his toe nails, he was seen by Jamie who was so good and patient with him. He took his time and talked him through what was happening putting my son at ease. Top class service.

I went to them to treat a verruca on my foot. They were very honest about the situation and they told me it will take too many sessions before we start see any results. They were very professional and very careful about looking after my foot, totally recommend them. Update, after 3 sessions using Swift my foot started to get very itchy but the verruca did not change in size at all. I called the GP and it gave me Daktacort cream. After a week, the verruca started to disappear. I continued using it once a week after that and the verruca completely disappeared. Daktacort cream is not used for verruca but it had a magic effect on it. They should start using it for verruca, less pain and less money.
