Have you ever had an ingrown toenail?

Did you have to go to the podiatrist to get it fixed?

I have been going to the podiatrist for about 15 years now - I go every 10 weeks on a health care plan.

I have never had an ingrown toenail and I feel sure that by going regularly to a podiatrist, it helps!

I have had corns which they showed me how to fix and since going regularly I no longer have a problem with painful corns or anything foot related.

I can highly recommend seeing a podiatrist 5 times a year, which is the amount you get on the Medicare health plan for seniors, I think it is.

Not myself.

My son did. 3-4 painful podiatrist appointments had him all fixed.

Was caused by the angle his nail was growing at.

A chemical was applied to stop his nail from growing anymore... (just on the sides)... it was quite a horrible procedure.
I haven't . . . but . . . I have a very painful nail situation at the moment due to a couple of mishaps and I am hoping it does not turn into an ingrown nail. I cannot stand having my feet touched.

I'm in the same boat, Rice. Fingers crossed...or should I say, toes?!

No. I have never had an ingrown toenail. I always look after my feet and have never had type of foot problem.
Never had it. Looks very painful.
I thought it was an ingrown toenail, had an inflamed area down the side of one cuticle but I fixed it myself.
My Grandmother had a podiatrist who made a mess of her feet. Did everything his new way which was pretty much the opposite of what my Grandfather , who learnt in the army, taught us to do. She suffered with very painful feet at the end of her life.
I have and didn't even realise I had to cut the nails like that at age 18-19, until it started cutting into my skin and bleeding.

I still get them but try to dig in with the clippers to prevent them before they get too bad.
I haven't...ever. I've only been to a podiatrist twice, years ago. I need to go again, so she can cut my toenails nicely, for me! I don't think it comes under Medicare!

Miro, my doctor gives me access to cheaper podiatry visits under the Health Care plan whicn entitles me to 5 visits annually. Sometimes I use Physiotherapy or a dietician (dietician doesn't incur any out-of-pockets). It does come under Medicare I think but as all bulk bill, I only have the small cost of the Podiatrist or Physiotherapist to pay. It does make a difference when you have your feet attended to professionally so my ingrown toenail is always there but it doesn't bother me between visits. It's just the way my big toenail grows.

I try to look after my feet myself, not up to having someone else doing my nails or feet. For me it's a tad (too personal)...but! I know that Podiatrists do amazing work, for those who really need them.
I have had the odd ingrown, and fixed it up really quickly, after having a shower.
Fortunately I have never been afflicted by an ingrown toenail. I have seen others suffer dreadfully with these very painful things and I must say how relieved I am to have eluded them so far!!
No - thankfully
