William keeps getting ingrown toenails on both big toes. We trim and soak, etc. but they always come back - and it seems quite painful for him. My husband tries to keep the nail trimmed back but it isn't working well - and it is painful for William. My husband is like the Sweeney Todd of podiatry I guess. I made an appt. with the podiatrist but anyone know what they can do for a child (he is 10) with this issue? My husband had one of his toenails partially "removed" so it can't become ingrown anymore but I'm not sure they'd do this for a child who is still growing. Considering good foot health is important for someone with diabetes - this constant return of infected toes needs to be handled some way or another - not that he is likely to have complications anytime soon with his feet.
