Condition :

Corns and calluses

Corns are located on pressure points under the feet or between the toes. Painful or not, if left untreated, they can become larger , thicker and deeper. Calluses are areas of your feet where the skin gets thicker because of a repeated friction or plantar pression. The podiatrist will debride corns and calluses with sterile instruments and give you some advice on different creams to apply at home.

Corns and calluses

Condition :

Ingrown toenail

This frequently seen problem can be treated by cutting the portion of the nail that has penetrated the skin with a technique called slant back. It can also be permanently treated under local anesthesia with a minor surgery called partial matricectomy.

•Redness, swelling and pain at the periphery of the nail ;
•Possible discharge of pus.

Ingrown toenail

Condition :

Mycotic nails

Onychomycosis is a frequently seen fungal infection. When in doubt, the podiatrist will take a specimen of your toenail to confirm his diagnosis. There are topical and oral medications to treat onychomycosis.

•Presence of debris under the toenail ;
•Thickened and crumbly toenails.

Mycotic nails

Condition :

Neuroma

When there is a compression of a nerve between two bones in the foot, a neuroma can occur. In reaction to this repeated friction when walking, the nerve gets thicker and sends pain signals. Wearing inadequate shoes can lead to this problem over time. Your podiatrist will give you advice on a proper footwear for your condition. There are also treatments to relieve pain such as a cortisone injection, ultrasound therapy and cushioned shoe pads. Custom foot orthotics are indicated when the nerve compression is caused by the malalignment of the feet. Severe cases can require surgery.

•Burning or electrical shock sensation in the toes;
•Feeling of having a fold in your sock or a bump inside your shoe.

Neuroma

•Growth under the foot or on the toes with or without callus on top ;
•Black pinpoints (small clotted blood vessels) ;
