Ingrown Toenail

what do you do if you get an ingrown toenail, and you've already had surgery on it?

Re: Ingrown Toenail

You have it done again. Unless they put this stuff on it to keep it from growing back that way (I forget what it is called) , it can grow back. I had one do it. My insurance did not cover the med to stop regrowth and I couldn't pay the $200 plus for it. So it did come back later. The second time we did the same thing and it has yet to come back. Maybe the second time got it without having to use the med to kill it. You might ask your podiatrist about it if you have good insurance or if NHS will pay for it.
