There are different types of foot fungus that occur due to many factors both internally and externally, that can alter one’s physical state, foot wise. Every day there are many women around the world that wish that they could change the way that their skin looks.
They can be treated using foot supports, heel pads, and heel cups. In order to retain healthy feet, you must make an effort to take care of your feet. Wash your feet every day in lukewarm soapy water but do not soak the feet as this can cause excessive dryness of feet. Dry your feet completely, especially in between the toes and moisturizing cream should be applied all over the feet, but not in between the toes. You may smoothly rub with a pumice stone or a skin file. Trim them straight across the toe and not too short. Regularly scrub your feet, mainly the heels, using a foot scrubber. It helps in removing the dead cells and making feet softer. Examine your feet regularly with mirror and if there are any defects or infections, then immediately consult a doctor. Never do self-treatment for feet. A toe corn could develop on the top of a toe or between toes.
It may be so severe that people who have the condition are usually kept awake at night because of the pain. Because the calcaneus or the heel bone is the largest bone that can be found in the foot, it usually hits the ground first when the individual walk, causing foot pain. Another cause is due to strain on the ligament at the foot bottom, called plantar fascistic. Athletes also tend to develop heel pain from stress fractures.
Hands at times also get infected with calluses, but the use of pumice stone is not advised for removal of calluses on hands. The process is a bit slow, but the treatment is permanent and guaranteed without any side effect. There are surgical treatments as well where your doctor will cut the hard skin but only few people resort to this option. As far as medication is concerned salicylic acid ointments is often used to remove the hard portions of the skin. Complications caused by calluses should be consulted with podiatrist as it can also cause infection in certain number of ways. The treatment of callus depends upon its nature and severity. But some of the treatments out there are very hard and damaging to your skin.
Your podiatrist will need to check with you about where exactly you’re experiencing swelling (is it just in your foot or is your leg swollen as well, for example), whether it comes and goes during certain times of the day (morning versus evening), whether anything makes it better or worse, and any other symptoms you may be experiencing.
