Verrucae and Warts - NEW!

Ingrown toenails
When you have an ingrown toenail, the skin on the side of the toe starts to grow over the edge of the nail. It can cause swelling, pain and redness. 

When your big toe is angled towards the second toe, the deformity is called a bunion (hallux valgus). This causes a bump on the side at the base of the big toe. In addition there is often thickening of the skin and tissues next to the affected joint. The thickened skin and tissues may become inflamed, swollen and painful.
