Ingrown Nail or Onychocryptosis

Sunday, 08 November 2009

ingrown nail onychocryptosis Nail is the horned part of the epidermis appearing as the plate and is on the dorsum of the phalange bone of hands and toes. Nails have the protective function and prevent the phalange bones from injuries. Apart from it, nails are the thing that attracts attention in ladies, especially when they are well cared. Fingernails are not difficult to care of unlike the toenails, especially the hallux if the nails start growing inside.

Ingrown nail or onychocryptosis, as it is called medically, is the pathology of nail growth when the lateral parts of the nail plate grows in the soft tissues surrounding the nail followed by strong pain, inflammations and edemas in the problem area. The first sign of nail grown in the tissues is the pain in the toe when walking, especially when wearing tight and narrow shoes. If no actions are undertaken, the place of ingrowths inflames followed by pyorrhea (discharge of pus) and bleeding. If you decide to cope with this problem independently without consulting the medical personnel, it may bring to dramatic consequences, and the point is that the ingrown nail cannot be cut merely, and specific skills and knowledge are required to remove the ingrown part of the nail, including the special tools.

The reasons of the ingrown nail

The in-born physiological adherence to ingrowing nails is rare in nature, and in most cases the onychocryptosis is developed by the other reasons:

  • wrong care of nails (deep and incorrect cut of nail plate)
  • platypodia and other orthopedic diseases of feet
  • wearing of tight and uncomfortable shoes
  • various diseases (fungal, and also problems with metabolism, like diabetes mellitus)
  • non-qualified performance of pedicure.

Nail ingrown may appear as a single case and on regular basis. If your nails ingrow regularly, you have to pay a special attention to choosing the shoes for you, and opt for models with the wide nose part, made of natural material, without heels or on small platform, since such models do not create pressure to toes.

With the purpose to avoid repetitive ingrowing of nails, you need to care of your nails and have your nails pedicured by the qualified masters. When the nail plates ache, it is required to treat these areas with some disinfectant, like iodine, chlorofilliptine to avoid penetration of infection into the zones of ingrown nail. Once you decided to get rid of this problem for ever, you'd better apply to the cosmetic centers and clinics offering laser treatment.

The only effective method to treat the ingrown nails without any relapse is the laser surgery. The beamed flow of laser СО2 radiation is directly exposed the immediate reason (the lateral part of the nail) and removes it without any pain, at the same time making the point of ingrowths healthy, leaving soft tissues and nail base untouched. The rehabilitation period after the ingrown nail is removed by the laser lasts three days, not longer, and after you may wear your favorite shoes, and not to think of the risk to get the nail ingrown again.

All methods known earlier, including surgical removal of the whole nail plate, and so forth, are painful, at first, and they do not ensure that the risk is minimized to zero, at second. The rehabilitation period after such surgery lasts several weeks, and throughout this period the patient feels pain, discomfort and is restricted in movements because of pain and impossibility to wear the shoes s/he likes.

If the nail ingrowths due to the fungus, the patient is recommended that s/he administers the course of required medications with anti-fungal effect. Also the laser therapy is indication here, when the laser radiation is exposed to the nail plate itself to kill all fungus prior to remove the ingrown part of the nail.

Some tips to avoid the ingrown nails:

  • try to wear comfortable shoes that are not tight and squeeze nails. The fashionable shoes are not comfortable, thus choose shoes subject to comfort not trends.
  • adhere to the hygiene of feet to avoid fungus infection, wash feet regularly, never wear shoes of other persons, do showers for feet, and always wear sandals or flip-flops in saunas, swimming pool or bath houses.
  • use services of professional pedicurist, since the cases of independent  cutting of nails and wrong shape of nails sometimes may cause them in grow.
