Overview of Podiatric conditions that I can treat
A foot ulcer is an open sore on the foot some are deep some are not. A deep foot ulcer may be a cavity that extends through the full thickness of the skin. It may involve tendons, bones and other deep structures. People with diabetes or people with poor circulation are more likely to develop foot ulcers. Foot ulcers are most common for people who have health problems like peripheral neuropathy, circulatory problems and abnormalities in the bones or muscles of the feet.
The medical term for this is Tinea Pedis and there are 3 types.
- Interdigital: found in between the toes and is very itchy
- Moccasin: presenting as dry, non itchy, flaky skin on the bottom & sides of the foot. Often accompanied by fungal toenails. People are generally unaware of this one because there is no itching and usually diagnosed by a Podiatrist.
- Inflammatory: blistering itchy rash, prone to secondary bacterial infections.
Fungal spores can survive in shoes for up to 2 years and at an extra small fee I can treat patients’ footwear and prevent re-infection of the athlete’s foot.
