Wow, this is a severe ingrown toenail!

A little while back, our podiatrists saw the worst ingrown toenail case we had ever seen.

A young woman in her late 20’s came to see us at The Podiatry Practice & Ingrown Toenail Centre with severe ingrown toenail problems since her teenage years. She couldn’t wear open-toe shoes or go barefoot due to her concerns about the appearance. Chronic recurrent infections and irritation had caused a hard fibrous mass to develop on the side of her toe due to the severity of the ingrown toenail. Not even antibiotics or removing the edge of the nail could help.  But, after a simple procedure under local anaesthetic to remove the mass and the affected margin of nail she was so thrilled at the result, she gave us consent to use the images of her toe to let people know how we can help people suffering similar severe ingrown toenails. More importantly, she can now show off her feet again in sandals and other open shoes! Take a look at the before and after (below):
