The best time to treat your ingrown toenail is before it becomes infected.
Ingrown toenails are commonly ignored and left to heal on their own, which can lead to even more toe pain and possible infection. Ignoring your ingrown toenail or performing at-home bathroom surgery will only make your ingrown toenail worse!
If you have an ingrown toenail the best thing you can do is, seek immediate treatment from a podiatrist.
A podiatrist has the expertise and specialty to remove the portion of the ingrown toenail (NOT the entire toenail) without causing a lot of pain. If you have an ingrown toenail and need treatment call 562-433-0478 to schedule your appointment today.
We have two podiatry office locations in Long Beach and also offer Saturday appointments.
