It is the DREADED ingrown nail. The one that hurts even if the sheets just barely come across it. It throbs. It is its own entity lol.
There are just so many options out there.
First and foremost, see a physician! Especially if its infected or oozing... It may be time for a antibiotic and then we can start.
Our business uses steam sterilized and individually packaged tools, ALWAYS. Why? because why in the hell would you ever want to risk your toe, foot or ebven your life!!! Dont let unqualified spa, beauty or your mom or spouse to start digging away.
At our office we assess, and non invasively treat ingrowns. We have a special method using some of the best products and a nurses gentle touch.
We use a special expoxy resin system to cast the toe to maintain healthy, normal growth pattern and stop the nai from growing inward. Once it grows out..Magic, its perfect!
If we feel that this system or care plan will not work for you then we refer you for surgery to a podiatrist. But thats our last resort. The surgery can be painful recovering and costly.
We are very good with our foot care tools, tehniques and podiatry burrs to maintain a professionally cut nail and thinned down sides to maintain a good cut that works for you. Its all about the "technique"
