Nip Those Nails In The Bud - London's Ingrown Experts

Updated: Mar 5

Here at our nail surgery clinic, we specialise in treating ingrown toenails and providing permanent relief from the pain and discomfort they cause.

What is an Ingrown Toenail?

When the toenail grows into the skin, it often gets red, swollen, and infected. This leads to pretty bad pain when you put on shoes or even walk around. If you don't properly treat an ingrown toenail, the symptoms just get worse over time. The swelling and pain will increase, and the infection can spread deeper into the toe.


Ingrown toenails affect people of all ages and genders. The most common causes include:


  • Improperly trimmed nails

  • Heredity

  • Abnormal nail shape

  • Excessive perspiration of the feet

  • Ill-fitting shoes or socks put pressure on the toes


Common symptoms indicating an ingrown toenail include:


  • Throbbing, persistent pain and tenderness along the nail edges

  • Significant redness, swelling, and inflammation of the toe

  • Pus-like drainage from the inflamed area

  • Difficulty wearing shoes due to contact with the nail

Conservative Treatments

Mild cases can often be resolved through conservative at-home treatments such as:


  • Proper nail trimming technique - cutting straight across avoiding rounding at edges

  • Cotton wedges - gently lifting and separating nail from skin

  • Antibiotic ointment - reduces infection risk

  • Warm foot soaks - improves circulation and reduces swelling

  • Shoe inserts - minimise pressure on affected nails

When to Seek Professional Treatment

If an ingrown nail results in intolerable pain or worsens despite home care, visiting our clinic is strongly recommended. We provide advanced ingrown toenail surgery in London for effective long-term relief.

The Ingrown Toenail Removal Procedure

Our signature ingrown toenail surgery in London involves surgically removing the problematic nail edge or the entire nail. Local anaesthesia is administered for a completely painless procedure. Using a sterile technique, our podiatrist will:


  • Administer a local anaesthetic to numb the toe

  • Pry out the corner of the ingrown nail

  • Remove ingrown section or entire nail as needed

  • Cauterize visible tissue to prevent re-growth

  • Apply antibiotic ointment over the nail bed

  • Bandage the toe securely with a postoperative shoe
