Athletes foot treatment
Athlete's foot is a common and contagious fungal infection. This ailment is very common on the feet, but can spread to other areas of the skin such as your hands.
Some symptoms of athlete's foot include an itchy, stinging or burning sensation and may include blisters between the toes, or the cracking or peeling of your skin.
This condition, whilst common can be uncomfortable, however it is treatable.
Foot pain & heel pain
If you suffer from foot or heel pain when standing or walking then this can and will often make every day seem like a chore with the constant grind of pain.
There can be a variety of reasons why you are suffering from this and most can be treatable by a professional. You may have suffered an acute injury or wound, or you have been diagnosed with a chronic condition such as diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis.
As fully qualified and registered Foot Health Practitioners, Donna Geddes Home Chiropody Care are here to help and advise you.
Ingrown toenails are a very common problem and although they mainly occur on the big toe, you can get them on any toe.
Typical symptoms can include swelling, redness, pain and general discomfort.
Many people make the mistake of trying to cut away the part of the nail that is growing into the skin. This will almost always definitely lead to further problems such as an infection.

Bunion and corn treatments
A bunion is a bony lump that can form on the side of your feet. This usually occurs on the side of the big toe and can cause your toe to point towards you other toes.
This can look unsightly with hard and swollen skin but more importantly it can lead to pain along the sides and the bottom of the foot.
A corn is an area of hard or thick skin which can cause pain as they can become tender. A corn can restrict your range of footwear and affect your mobility due to the pain felt by the patient when any foot pressure is applied. Although not usually serious, they can be very uncomfortable and worsen if not treated by a professional.
