#HerndonVA Do you place cotton balls under your ingrown toenails to try to relieve the pressure? Don’t!!
This is Doctor Stanley Idiculla, your favorite podiatrist in Herndon, and today, I want to tell you why.
Cotton balls, especially if filled with some kind of medicinal solution or other fluid, can cause the toe area to remain moist and warm, which is the exact environment needed to create the growth of bacteria. Taking this risk creates the possibility of developing an infection or condition such as fungal nail.
If you have an ingrown toenail, it is best to see a podiatrist. I invite you to see me, Doctor Idiculla, at my office in Herndon.
