Ingrown toenail treatment

Surgical nail procedures include treatments for fungal nail infection and ingrown toenails. 

Prescription antifungal medicines taken by mouth may help clear a fungal nail infection. However, in some cases, removal of the nail may be necessary. A new clearer nail may take up to a year to grown in.

Ingrown toenails that do not heal or keep coming back may need to be partially removed. This procedure, called a partial nail avulsion, involves cutting along the edge of the nail where the skin is growing over. The portion of the nail is then removed. In some cases, the doctor will use a chemical, electrical current or small surgical cut to destroy or remove the area from which a new nail may grow.
