4 Perfect Options In The Treatment for Ingrown Toenail

Treatment for ingrown Toenail:

The options in the treatment for ingrown toenail are enlisted and explained in detail.

I. Medication


The use of medication is often recommended when home remedies are not sufficient to manage the

pain and discomfort associated with ingrown toenail.

 

A. Painkillers:

Over-the-counter painkillers such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen and naproxen can be helpful in

managing the pain and discomfort associated with ingrown toenail. These medications can help to

reduce swelling, inflammation and tenderness of the affected toe.

B. Antibiotics:

In cases where an infection has occurred due to an ingrown toenail, antibiotics can be prescribed by a

doctor to treat the infection. Oral antibiotics are typically recommended, but topical antibiotics may be

used in some cases.

II: Home Remedies

One of the best ways to treat an ingrown toenail is through the use of home remedies. These remedies

are simple and non-invasive, making them an ideal choice for many sufferers. Common home

remedies include soaking the foot in warm water, keeping the toenails trimmed, applying topical

medications and wearing wide shoes to reduce pressure. If a home remedy does not provide relief,

more invasive methods of treatment may be necessary.

III. Partial Nail Excision

Partial nail excision is a more invasive form of treatment which involves the removal of part of the

toenail. During the procedure, a small portion of the toenail is removed, along with any tissue which has

become entrapped beneath the nail. This procedure may help reduce pressure and allow the nail to

grow back without becoming ingrown again.

IV: Complete Nail Excision

Complete nail excision is a last resort and sometimes an alternate to partial nail excision and involves

the removal of the entire toenail. The entire nail is removed, along with any tissue which has become

entrapped beneath the nail. This procedure is much more invasive than partial nail excision, but may

provide more permanent relief for many sufferers.

V: Nail Fold Excision

Nail fold excision is an extremely rare procedure that entails the removal of part of the nail and the

surrounding skin. This procedure is reserved only for the most severe cases, or patients who had their

nail removed multiple times but still, the nail grows inside the skin.

VI: Conclusion

There are a variety of treatments available for ingrown toenail, ranging from home remedies to

medications to surgical procedures. Home remedies such as soaking the affected toe in warm water

and wearing comfortable shoes can help prevent further irritation of the toenail. If home remedies are

not sufficient in managing the pain and discomfort associated with the ingrown toenail, medications

such as painkillers and antibiotics may be prescribed. In cases where home remedies and medications

do not provide relief, surgery can be done to remove the affected nail and surrounding tissue to

provide relief from pain and discomfort.
