Unsightly Foot Condition? You’re Not Alone!

While many folks out there suffer from shame over cosmetic foot issues – some of which have more serious issues associated with them – the truth is that virtually everyone experiences some sort of troubling problem of this nature in their lives. Until the 20th century, foot conditions such as toenail fungus, corns and plantar warts simply went untreated for the most part – it’s only recently that foot hygiene has become a priority for the human race!

Here at Feet First Clinic, we offer a variety of services ranging from 3D video gait analysis to toenail fungus treatments and everything in between. Whether you’re in severe physical discomfort or you really want those warts removed before you leave for your beach vacation, our foot chiropodists can help.

Additionally, we offer some of the best brands of footwear on the market with optimal ventilation, comfort and support. Our experts can help you figure out what kind of footwear is going to give you what you need in terms of hygiene, style and overall health.

In this post, we’re going to go over some common foot conditions that we see a lot of. Remember: if you discover an abnormality on your foot, chances are it is easily treatable. Worst case scenario, it may require a few months of care and diligence to nip the problem in the bud, and also a pair of flip-flops for the shower at the gym!

Corns & Calluses

 Corns are hard growths that typically form on your toes. Sometimes folks have them removed simply because they don’t look very nice, but they can also cause redness swelling and pain if they are not treated. Similarly, calluses are composed of hardened skin, typically along the soles of your feet; they are more common in women than in men.

Both corns on your feet and calluses can be removed with relative ease – they’re nothing to worry about and typically signify that you’re a fairly active person.

Athlete’s Foot

Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection, typically transmitted through wet floors at the pool or in the shower (this is where the flip-flops come in). The infection results in cracking, peeling and reddening of the skin accompanied by itchiness and stinging. A mild case can be treated with cream, and a more severe case requires a combination of cream and oral antibiotics.

Plantar Warts

 Plantar warts look something like a miniature crater that’s formed on the bottom of your foot. Sometimes doctors will attempt to remove these with multiple applications of liquid nitrogen, but this is not at all the best method. The experienced chiropodists at our Toronto foot clinic can take care of plantar warts faster, with less of a hassle. These warts are initially subtle, creating minimal discomfort, but they grow over time and become quite a nuisance.        

 Hopefully, this post has made you feel less self-conscious about any potential foot conditions you may have. Don’t hesitate to call or book an appointment if you have any issues with your feet or footwear!
