http://www.austinfootandankle.com If you think you have an ingrown toenail, do yourself a favor and make an appointment with a podiatrist. Many people try to remove the nail and cause infections that could have been prevented. Do not ever use tools that are not sterilized and do not put anything under your nail plate because foot infections can be very serious. Signs of an ingrown toenail include swelling, pain, puss and redness. Ingrown toenails are usually very easy to treat when you see an experienced podiatrist but can cause many problems if you try to treat them yourself. If you think you have an ingrown toenail, don’t hesitate to call the Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists at 512-328-8900.
