Onychocryptosis / Ingrown Toenails
Ingrown toenails are one of the most frequent nail disorders. They may negatively influence daily activities, cause discomfort and pain which can limit your daily movement. Caused by a nail that penetrates the skin, this condition can cause infections with swelling, increased warmth and pain, redness, drainage of pus or a watery discharge tinged with blood.
Since more than 1,000 years, many different treatments have been proposed. Today, conservative and surgical methods are available, which, when carried out with expertise, are able to treat the disease. Packing, taping, gutter treatment, and nail braces are options for relatively mild cases whereas surgery is exclusively done by physicians. Phenolisation of the nail matrix is now the safest, simplest, and most commonly performed method with the lowest recurrence rate.

Ingrown toenails can often be treated with a simple procedure that removes the piece of nail. If chronic problems persist, corrective surgery to remove part or the entire nail is an option.
Onychomycosis / Fungal Nail
This common condition is an infection of the bed and plate under the surface of your nail. Fungi called dermatophytes attack the nail and thrive off of keratin, your nail’s protein substance. Your nail will likely become thicker and take on a yellowish brown colour. There may be an associated foul odour and debris collected under your nail plate.
