We Fix Ingrown Toenails In Two Key Ways
If you're unsure which ingrown nail treatment is best for you, or whether you should explore nail surgery or non-surgical options, don't worry. Our podiatrists will explain everything at your appointment, including how each treatment works, what you can expect, and what we recommend for you based on our assessment of your toes. If you have an infected ingrown toenail, we'll also talk you through any additional steps you may need to take to support your toe health and optimise your recovery.
Ingrown Toenails Don't Go Away On Their Own
Ingrown toenails are frustrating, painful and can quickly stop you from walking comfortably or doing the things you love. They can affect anyone at any age - from babies to older adults. They occur when a piece of the nail pierces and cuts through the skin that surrounds it, and starts growing into it, producing pain, swelling, redness and sometimes bleeding. The only way to treat the ingrown nail is to remove this piece of nail quickly, carefully and effectively.

Ingrown Toenail FAQs
I have an infected ingrown toenail. Can you still help?
Yes. We will assess your toenail to understand the severity of your infection and whether you may need antibiotic care to support your recovery. In many cases, we can still treat your toenail. If we suspect you may be at risk or the infection is too severe, we will advise you about the best course of action immediately.
Do you do ingrown toenail removal?
Yes, though in most cases we only need to remove a small section at the edge of your nail, as opposed to the entire toenail. We will discuss the best way forward given your unique circumstances during your appointment with us.
Should I see a doctor or a podiatrist for an ingrown toenail?
Speaking as podiatrists, we see and treat ingrown toenails daily and have refined our processes and the equipment we use. Additionally, we offer a simple ingrown toenail package that includes all of your dressing changes and follow-up appointments. This is our speciality service, and while we cannot speak on behalf of our GP colleagues, we do believe that we provide exceptional ingrown toenail treatment and care.
I've been digging out my ingrown toenail at home and it feels worse. Can you still help?
Absolutely. We completely understand the urge to try to get relief and dig the nail out yourself. We call this 'bathroom surgery' and it does not have any impact on our ability to successfully treat your ingrown toenail.
Do you offer any other services aside from ingrown toenail care?
As we are part of Masterton Foot Clinic, our podiatrists are also experienced in providing a wide range of services to treat the feet and legs. You can see the full range of our services on our website - from painless laser fungal nail treatment to shockwave therapy and much more.
