Description: Ingrown toenail. This is an injury caused by a spike (piece) of nail that has penetrated the edge of the finger or the valley of the nail. The lesion can be classified in degrees according to its severity.

  • Stage I: Local irritation, without infection, without granulation tissue and without purulent exudate, with no history of onicocryptosis. Does not present onycholysis
  • Stage II: Inflammation, presence of infection and / or granulation tissue, with no history of onicocryptosis. No onycholysis.
  • Stage III: Infection with history of onicocryptosis, presence of pus or granulation tissue
  • Stage IV: Onychrocytosis with infection and presence of partial onycholysis at one border;
  • Stage V: Onicocryptosis with presence of onycholysis of both nail borders.

Posology

Stage I and II without infection: After cleaning the lesion, apply Low Intensity Laser – LBI and at the end occlude with wound covers.
