Ingrown Toenails
 

Although they can start out as a small nuisance, ingrown toenails can become a real problem if left untreated. Caused by a segment of the toenail that embeds in the skin around the nail, an ingrown toenail is characterized by pain, swelling, redness and a feeling of warmth in the affected toe. If the nail digs into the flesh around the nail and causes the skin to break, bacteria can enter, resulting in an infection. The infection can increase the level of pain in the toe and create additional problems.

No-Needle Ingrown Toenail Removal? 
 

 Many patients are anxious about the needle.  In No-Needle Podiatric Surgery, Dr. Anglin uses a “hypospray” injector to instantly deliver a tiny stream of lidocaine solution through the skin and into the toe or foot. In some cases, there is no needle or syringe. The skin is instantly numb. Additional  injection with a small 27 gauge needle may be necessary in some instances to completely numbs the toe(s).

 

How are SOME Ingrown Toenails Removed without a needle?

Traditionally, a local anesthetic has been injected into the skin. One could feel a tiny poke in the skin, then a bit of a burning or tingling sensation as the anesthetic is injected into the skin through a tiny 27 gauge needle. However, most people do not like needles of any size ... especially in the foot or toes!

In some instances, antibiotics may be prescribed to manage the infection and an outpatient surgery may be necessary to remove the offending nail. If you are in need of care for your ingrown toenail or are unsure how to properly care for your toenails, contact us today.
