The Ingrown nail is basically in warm, usually wet, and harmful bacteria-rich surroundings and it offers an easy access for bacteria, which will cause bacterial infection.
Without treatment, the nail will go under the skin, leading to a serious bacterial infection.
Myth: Antibiotics will make ingrown toenails go away.
Fact: Your podiatrist may prescribe an antibiotic for your ingrown toenail, but it’s to clear up a resulting infection. The cause of the problem, the nail, is still there.
A young, pediatric patient came to us with issues on both of her feet. We took great care of each making sure to change gloves and keep the instruments separate.
