At the Dermatologic Surgery Center in Medina, Ohio, we offer a number of different treatments to help improve the appearance and health of your hair and nails. Their condition can reflect or play into your overall health and hygiene. Certainly, your hair and nails affect your daily life. It is important to take proper care of them.

Nail Conditions

A variety of nail conditions appear in our patients. Each condition requires a different assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. Here are a few nail conditions we might treat.

Ingrown Toenails

An ingrown toenail is a common toenail problem where a toenail becomes painful or irritable due to a foreign body reaction of keratinaceous tissue nail penetrating the cuticle. Possible causes include tight shoes, infection, trauma, and poorly trimmed toenails. This condition often occurs in adolescents, young children, and pregnant women.

At DSC, we can treat ingrown toenails in many ways. We may suggest packing, taping, gutter treatment, nail braces, and phenolization. We will explain the procedure to you so you know why we recommend that specific intervention.

Clubbing Of The Nails

Clubbing of nails occurs when nails seem to bulge up and wrap around enlarged fingertips. It is linked to conditions such as lung disease and Crohn’s disease.

Because clubbing often coexists with diseases, treatment may require developing a prognosis for the underlying condition. We may be able to help you prevent the appearance from worsening.
