Diabetic Footcare

Diabetic Footcare

Our Services
Diabetic footcare is essential as having diabetes can be dangerous for your feet—even a small cut can produce serious consequences. Diabetes may cause nerve damage that takes away the feeling in your feet. Diabetes may also reduce blood flow to the feet, making it harder to heal an injury or resist infection. Because of these problems, you may not notice a foreign object in your shoe. As a result, you could develop a blister or a sore. This could lead to an infection or a nonhealing wound that could put you at risk for an amputation. Everyone who has diabetes should have their feet checked regularly with a podiatrist, and at the very least once a year at their annual review. DIABETIC FOOT HEALTH ASSESSMENT At Feet Street Podiatry, your…

Ingrown toenail treatment

Ingrown toenail treatment

Our Services
An ingrown toenail occurs when the nail has grown into the skin at the sides of the nail. This can cause the area to become painful, weep, bleed or exude pus. Several factors can cause ingrown toenails, such as injury to the nail (including loss of the nail through sport or injury), incorrect nail cutting, or tight-fitting shoes. In many cases the shape of the toenail may itself be the main cause and the condition can run in families. NON-SURGICAL TREATMENT In many cases a single visit to the podiatrist may alleviate the condition. Treatment will involve removing the offending piece of nail and applying a sterile dressing if needed. If the toe is very painful then a local anaesthetic can be given prior to treatment to completely numb the toe. If…
