INGROWN NAIL SOLUTION
An infected nail doesn’t cause much discomfort until it actually does. It becomes hard to ignore and can become hellacious if you continue to live with it. Ingrown toenails can be a special bother if you already have a particular condition. For instance, ingrown toenail among diabetes patients can be a lot more serious.
Hence, if you catch an infection on your nail due to an ingrown nail or some injury, you should immediately contact Empire Foot & Ankle as we offer exclusive ingrown nail treatment in Chino Hills.
INGROWN NAIL: THE COMMON CAUSES
Some of the common causes of ingrown nail include:
Erroneous nail cutting techniques
Nail plate thickening
Subungual Exostosis (SE)
Hallux valgus or some lesser toe deformities
HOME REMEDIES FOR INGROWN NAIL
Carrying out an ingrown nail treatment at your home in Chino Hills may not be a permanent solution. But it will provide you with some temporary relief.
Soak your foot in warm water three to four times a day whilst pushing the skin away from the nail with a cotton bud. Adding Epsom’s salt in the water makes the process more effective.
Do not cut the nail repeatedly as it makes the problem worse.
Wear footwear that leaves plenty of room for your footwear to move.
If all of this doesn’t work out, seek help from a podiatrist.
