While many ingrown toenails can be treated at home or resolve themselves, there are cases of ingrown toenails that start out as a seemingly small issue and end up becoming a more serious problem. Oftentimes, this happens in conjunction with diabetes, as an ingrown toenail may go unnoticed for too long and cause an infection. At Animas Foot & Ankle, we urge you to come in at the first signs of an ingrown toenail. Though this condition seems like no big deal, we want to make sure that you get the best treatment possible to prevent complications. If you have an ingrown toenail, call our podiatry office in Durango or Loveland so that we can help you find relief.
