occur when an edge or both edges of the nail embed further into the skin. This may result in soreness, pain, swelling and in some cases infection.
This condition is very common in people suffering from diabetes, obesity, foot injuries and can occur due to ill fitting footwear.
Treatment options depend on the condition and shape of the impacted nail and may vary from corrected trimming of nails, bracing to nail surgery (if conservative treatments fail).
Management and treatment of this condition is carried out by trained podiatrist and each treatment option thoroughly discussed with you beforehand.
