PROCEDURES
REMOVAL OF INGROWN NAILS

At Valvekliinik we will partially or completely remove an ingrown nail to prevent inflammation and to alleviate the pain and swelling caused by the ingrown nail.

Ingrown nails are a common problem for both men and women, which is usually caused by:

  • incorrect cutting of the toenails;
  • wearing narrow shoes;
  • toe trauma or nail disease, such as a fungal infection.

The pain from ingrown nails can be alleviated at home, but generally, assistance from a doctor is needed to partially or completely remove the ingrown nail to prevent inflammation and to alleviate the pain and swelling caused by it.

If an ingrown nail is left untreated, the inflammation may grow and cause a bacterial infection with serious side effects. If redness and inflammation do not subside and there is any puss-like discharge, please contact a doctor as soon as possible.
