Removal of Ingrown Toenail
Ingrown Toenail is a toenail having its free tip embedded in the surrounding flesh or nails whose corners or sides dig painfully into the skin of the toe.
Early-stage symptoms include:
- Skin next to the nail becoming tender, swollen, or hard
- Pain when pressure is placed on the toe
- Fluid building up around the toe

Almost everyone will experience an open wound at some point. While most open wounds are relatively minor and heal fully with simple home remedies, others may require professional medical.
Seek medical help should the wound and/or its surrounding areas become:
- Excessively swollen
- Hot to the touch
- Wetter, particularly if it is exuding pus
- Exceptionally red, especially if it is spreading – marking the edges of a reddened patch of skin with a pen can help show whether it is getting more widespread over time
A laceration is a wound that occurs when skin, tissue, and/or muscle is torn or cut open. Lacerations may be deep or shallow, long or short, and wide or narrow. Most lacerations are the result of the skin hitting an object, or an object hitting the skin with force. Laceration repair is the act of cleaning, preparing, and closing the wound.
If a laceration is deep and underlying tissue or muscle is also lacerated, stitches may be needed under the skin before the wound can be closed. This will rejoin muscle and tissue layers.
