Painful or infected toe nails

Are your nails causing you a problem ?

Toe nails can be damaged by in a number of ways form repetitive injuries to the toe, such as heavy objects falling on it, pressure from poorly fitting shoes, nail fungus or toe bruising (common in athletes and runners ) .

All of these factors may cause damage to the nail and it`s growth. Sometimes, poor nail cutting may leave a spike of nail that may protrude into the skin as the nail grows outward and if the skin becomes inflamed and swollen due to infection then pain will develop. For an expert opinion, advice and treatment make an appointment with Anna Balcombe.
