Here is an interesting article on the first string quarterback for FSU and his interest in becoming a Podiatrist after College and NFL.
The Tampa bay Buccaneers kicker contracted MRSA, a serious staph infection that can be resistant to drug treatments. This infection stemmed from an ingrown toenail and the infection which might have spread through the Buccaneers' facility. Tampa Bay guard Carl Nicks has also been sidelined with a MRSA infection. A third more recent case of MRSA infection has been reported infecting another Tampa Bay Bucs player. Tynes has been treated by an infectious disesase specialist and was placed on IV antibiotics via a pic line.
Ingrown toenails are one of the more common foot ailments that we treat at our offices. It is paramount to recognize that you have an ingrown toenail and have it treated as soon as possible. If you have pain, redness, swelling, drainage, and increased heat to one or both corners of your toenail it is key to have it evaluated as soon as possible to prevent infection. Cases have been reported of bone infection for untreated and unrecognized ingrown toenails.
Typical initial treatment is anesthetizing the digit with a local anesthestic in the office and removal of the ingrown nail. In certain cases we place patients on a course of oral antibiotics along with soaking in epsom salts and antibiotic cream/band aids. Rare cases involved IV antibiotics such as in the below link about the Tampa bay kicker.
For more information on ingrown toenails please refer to our website at carolinafootspecialists.net and past blogs on ingrown toenail treatments.
