Ingrown Toenail Treatment in Auburn, AL
Get Relief With Compassionate Care & Expert Treatment
Have you recently noticed that your big toe is a little sore and red around one side of the nail? Maybe you’ve researched your symptoms and decided that you have an ingrown toenail, but think, no big deal, right? Wrong. While many ingrown toenails resolve themselves or require little treatment, there are times when one can go from an annoying sore spot to a serious, even life-threatening infection. If you’re seeking ingrown toenail treatment in Auburn, AL, turn to our compassionate podiatrist at Auburn Foot Care Center.
Signs of an Ingrown Toenail
The most common signs of an ingrown toenail include:
- Tenderness or pain along one or both sides of your toenail
- A red area around your toenail
- Swelling near the sides of your toenail
- Heat coming from the painful or swollen area
- Pus leaking from the reddened area of your toe
Don’t Hesitate to Get Help
Even if you don’t feel any pain, if you have noticed any of the listed signs above, we highly encourage you to come in for an evaluation. As is the nature of a toenail, it may continue to grow, possibly embedding itself further into your toe. When this happens, your risk of complications increases, including an infection that can travel from the toe to the surrounding bone. A bone infection is very serious and can cause extreme illness and even death.
If you are diabetic, you have an even greater risk of infection due to the possibility of poor circulation in your feet. Check your condition daily for any swelling or redness around your toenails as neuropathy may prevent you from feeling pain or discomfort.
