Sometimes the shape of the nail can be extreme and the toe can keep getting infected making these nails difficult to manage as described. For these nails, there is a more permanent solution. The relevant toe is completely numbed with a local anaesthetic. The ingrowing section of nail (usually around 10%) is painlessly removed. The nail bed can then be treated and in the majority of cases this can prevent nail regrowth, avoiding a recurrence of trouble.
The end result is a toe that retains most of its nails minus the section that had given so much trouble. The procedure can be applied to one or both sides of the nail or in more extreme cases the whole nail can be removed.
