Treating ingrown toenails early is essential. Many patients will wait to get their ingrown toenail treated, and it will sometimes result in an infection. This complicates treatment, and also causes further pain to the patient.
When treating an ingrown toenail, Dr. Vargas will evaluate your condition and prescribe the most effective treatment. For minor cases of this condition, Dr. Vargas may soak your toenail and use a series of medicinal treatments as well as try to elevate the toenail.
In severe cases, surgery may be required. This is a procedure that takes a short amount of time, and will sometimes require an anesthetic injection. Once the toe is fully numbed, he will remove part of the toenail.
Treating an ingrown toenail is important to reduce the risks associated with infections. If you are considering treatment for an ingrown toenail, it is best that you do not delay. Get treatment today!
