If it’s not treated, an ingrowing toenail may become infected. A wedge excision removes part of the toenail by cutting it out or by applying a chemical to prevent regrowth of the nail.
You may be suffering from an ingrowing toenail. This ranges in severity from a moderately curved nail which presses into the fold of flesh at the side of the toe, to a nail which has grown forward and pierced the flesh, causing scar tissue to build up. In this case, infection often occurs.
The wedge excision procedure results in a slightly thinner nail, and some patients will experience further problems with infection and regrowth of the nail.
