An ingrowing toenail is a common condition, you may be experiencing pain or discomfort along with swelling and/or redness. This normally affects the big toe and can be on one or both sides. Left untreated this could result in surgery to completely remove the toenail.
The most common cause of thick toenails is a fungal infection, left untreated it can worsen and cause pain. Those suffering from Psoriasis or Diabetes unfortunately have an increased chance of this disorder developing.
We are trained in dealing with patients with a 'High Risk' foot, so can professionally treat those with Psoriasis, Diabetes, Peripheral Arterial Disease or Rheumatoid Arthritis to name a few.
Verruca appear on the soles of your feet as tiny black dots under hard skin. Whereas mosaic warts spread over a wider area of the skin on the soles of your feet which can sometimes itch but more commonly result in pain and embarrassment.
Either are caused by a virus and can spread to other people, especially in wet areas (such as swimming pools/shower rooms).
It can often take a long time to rid a verruca, you should not attempt to cut this out yourself as verruca's are highly vascular and you will not only bleed but could encourage the verruca to spread or grow.
We can assist with the safe removal, offer any follow up treatment (if required) and offer advice on prevention.
