INGROWN TOENAILS

Gentle & Caring Treatment By Our Toenail Restoration Specialists

At Blackwood Clementon Foot Specialists, our Podiatrists specialize in a quick, virtually painless, and correction of ingrown toenails.

Some common Symptoms of Ingrown Nails:

  • Inflammation

  • Pain

  • Redness

  • Swelling

  • Drainage

An ingrown toenail occurs when a corner of the nail grows into the flesh of the toe, causing redness and swelling, followed by pain and often infection. Ingrown toenails can occur due to improper trimming of the toenail, trauma or genetic factors.

Treatment for ingrown toenails is performed by gently numbing the toe, and then removing the offending corner of the nail. If you have chronic ingrown toenails, we can remove the root in the office to permanently prevent re-growth of the ingrown portion of the nail.

Your treatment will be gentle and virtually painless, and we'll get you back to your normal activities. Please don’t hesitate to contact us today.

 


 

LASER THERAPY FOR TOENAIL FUNGUS

We Offer State-Of-The-Art Treatment For Unsightly Toenails

Fungal toenails are caused by an organism that grows in and under the nail. The fungus likes to grow in warm, moist places like your shoes. Many patients pick up fungal toenail infections in the gym locker room, from a nail salon, wet shoes or from trauma. Fungus can stay in the nails for many years and can be passed from one person to another.

Therapy for fungal toenails include topical medications, oral medications, which can have some serious side effects; and the newest modality which is laser therapy.

Blackwood Clementon Foot Specialists offers many wart removal treatment options. Foot Warts (Plantar Warts) are a common foot condition that our Podiatrists treat in our practice. If you have one or more growths on the bottom of your foot that may or may not be painful, chances are it's a plantar wart. 

Plantar Warts are caused by a virus. You may notice little black dots in the wart. People sometimes think these dots are splinters. They are actually the blood vessels that nourish the wart. You can get viral warts anywhere you walk barefoot, such as the local pool, karate studio, dance studio, locker room or even from a pedicure salon.

There are several treatments for plantar warts, the type of treatment received depends upon the patient's needs.  Plantar warts can spread easily. If you think you have one or more plantar warts, book an appointment immediately to have them removed before they multiply
