Skin And Nail Conditions
Do you shy away from showing off your feet? Are you embarrassed to expose your toes? Is a nail or skin problem causing you pain and discomfort?
Skin and nail care play an important role in the overall health of your feet. Without proper care of your skin and nails, you could get infections or ulcers. These can lead to many other serious foot conditions, especially in older patients and persons with diabetes.
Foot Skin and Nail Problems That We Treat
The skin on your feet is thin and can easily become scratched, scraped, or damaged. Your nails take a beating when you run, walk, or wear the wrong shoes. Here are just a few of the nail and skin conditions our Richardson podiatrists often treat in our examination rooms:
Plantar warts are small skin growths on the bottom of your feet. They are non-cancerous, but they can be painful, making it difficult to walk. Over time they can impact your posture and may lead to joint problems.
Freezing, minor surgery, or a laser is used to treat this common foot condition. Talk to your podiatrist about which type of treatment is right for you.
