Unguis incarnatus:

Nails are common, especially on the big toes. The nail grows into the skin, which limits it laterally. The affected area becomes inflamed and painful. Shoes that are too tight, excessive perspiration and improper nail trimming can encourage ingrown toenails.

The needle bed reduction (Emmert plastic) is carried out in our practice. This involves a wedge-shaped removal of the nail part and the lateral nail wall. This is followed by an open wound treatment until the wound has healed completely and regular checks are carried out.
