A bit about ingrown toenails
Ingrown toenails cause the skin of the toe at the edges of the nail to become painful. There may be swelling and redness, new inflamed tissue (granuloma), and infection. It is important to note that not everyone with an ingrown toenail necessarily has an infection, many adults develop pressure pain without the nail piercing the skin. For some, the nail can simply curl over time and press on a sensitive part of the nail bed that is not designed to take this pressure.
It's safe to say, Ingrown toenails are a common problem; up to 2 out of 10 people visiting their doctor for a foot complaint will be because of an ingrown toenail. The big toe is most commonly affected. Often home remedies such as soaking the foot and toe in salty warm water helps, but may not fully eliminate the swelling, redness or infection associated with ingrown toenails, especially once they have been present for more than 2 weeks.
There is often a genetic component to ingrown toenails, if you ask family members you may find that they too have experienced problems with ingrown toenails. Things that can increase the likely hood of developing an ingrown toenail, or prevent resolution include:
Shoes that are too narrow or short in length
Sports that require tight fitting footwear (e.g., soccer and rock climbing)
Sweaty feet (common with kids)
Poor nail cutting or tearing/pulling at the nail (common with kids).
Ingrown toenails can be broadly categorised into 3 stages:
Stage 1: Acute symptoms (<2 weeks) with mild redness and swelling.
Stage 2: Progressed to an infection producing more pain and pus, there may also be a small amount of tissue growth called granulation.
Stage 3: Chronic symptoms (>2 weeks) with pus producing infection, more tissue enlargement around the toe nail and granulation tissue that is now growing over the nail.
Ingrown toenail management based on stage:
Stage 1: Non-surgical treatment such as gently removing the corner of the nail, salty warm water soaks, sulci taping and toe spacers.
Stage 2: Surgery may be indicated where non-surgical options fail.
Stage 3: Surgical treatment is highly likely to be the best option.
