Ingrown Toenails - Laser Surgery

Ingrown Toenails

Ingrown toenails develop at the edges or corners of the nails grow into the skin next to the nail. The big toe of the foot is most likely to get an ingrown toenail due to its position.

Ingrown toenails can be treated at home by various medical corrections. However, laser surgery is required if the complication gets higher. Complications generally get higher in people suffering from diabetes or any other conditions that cause poor circulation.

Causes of Ingrown Toenails

Ingrown toenails tend to grow in both men and women and are more common in people with sweaty feet. Older people are at higher risk of getting affected by ingrown toenails as toenails thicken with age.

Ingrown Toenail is mainly caused by:

  • Incorrect cutting of toenails
  • Improper footwear that places a lot of pressure on the big toes
  • Tight socks and stockings
  • Narrow or tight shoes
  • Shoes that are flat to the feet
  • Stubbing the toe
  • Something heavy getting dropped on the foot
  • Sports that require kicking a ball repeatedly
  • Poor toe posture
  • Lack of foot hygiene
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Extensive activities like football, soccer, ballet or kickboxing.
