Toenails need professional attention when they become thickened, infected by fungus, ingrown or are simply unreachable by the patient’s hands.
The ageing process does play a toll on our toenails too. Over time they do become thicker and may have even changed colour. However, excessively thickened nails are most likely a result of some form of trauma. This could be in the form of sudden or repetitive trauma or a result of poor mechanics of the foot causing the nail to involuted and lift. During your assessment, the podiatrist should be able to assess your feet and highlight the cause and suggest how best to help your nails.
Why have your Thickened Toenail treated at Perfect Skin Solutions?
It is disappointing for us to often encounter new patients who have recently had chiropody treatment, yet whose nails do not reflect comprehensive treatment. Our thorough approach aims to leave your nails and feet in the best condition possible. Furthermore, if pain is present, we strive to resolve this with treatment, although more than one session may be required to achieve this.Get in contact
