Q
What is the proper way to treat a child's ingrown toenail?

A

Depending on the severity of the condition, the podiatrist can sometimes relieve pain with simple trimming of the corner in the office. In cases where infection is present, a minor procedure is sometimes performed followed by oral antibiotics. Finally, in kids who just can’t kick the problem, a permanent procedure can be performed the the “bad” part of the nail.
