Treating Ingrown Toenails With Antiseptic?
I want to ask, is it possible to treat ingrown toenails with antiseptic alone?
Ingrown toenail is a condition in which there is swelling of the fingertips that contain the nails, as well as redness and complaints of pain in the area. Ingrown toenails are caused when the edges of the nail grow and push against the surrounding tissue, causing pain. Over time, this urge can become infected, and suppuration can even occur. Because ingrown toenails come from the wrong nail growth, antiseptics cannot be the main solution. Antiseptics only help prevent infection in the wound, but in the case of an ingrown toenail, it may not help at all because the infection occurs in the deep tissue of the finger. Therefore, the method of treating ingrown toenails that is widely used is through minor surgery, namely removing the nail so that the nail grows back in the direction it should be. But of course this requires sufficient discussion between the patient and the doctor. Therefore, we advise you to consult a doctor regarding the right treatment for the ingrown toenail you are experiencing. Here we attach an article about cantengan. Hope it is useful.
