There are many problems with the feet’s skin – some that are more common than others – but all can be detrimental to your overall foot health. Here we’re going to look at some of the most common and their symptoms or features so you know when it’s time to see your podiatrist:

 

  1. Athlete’s Foot – A very common skin condition – but unlike the name implies, anyone can get this painful, itchy condition, not just athletes. Also called “Tinea Pedis”, athlete’s foot is actually caused by a fungus that can cause an itchy, red rash that affects the areas between the toes and the soles. Chronic sufferers often have a red, scaly rash that can be mistaken for dry skin and will often go untreated.
  2. Warts – Warts can either be single or clustered together and are typically round in shape and can most commonly be found on the soles or sides of your foot. They are very often mistaken for a corn and even the more harmless callous because they often have the same hardened characteristics of these other two problems. However, remember that warts, unlike corns and callouses, are caused by a virus and can be difficult to get rid of.
  3. Bacterial infections – These can appear In a variety of different ways – and are very commonly found around the toenails. Ingrown toenails are often breeding grounds for bacterial infections, especially if the toenail is left untreated. There are times when bacterial infections are mistaken for athlete’s foot because of the same red, itchy rash. Still other infections can spread very quickly and require immediate care so be careful if you are trying to self-diagnose.
  4. Toe Fungus – Also called Onychomycosis is a common problem for many people. Typical signs of toe fungus are thickening toenails, discoloration and even change in the texture of the toenail – usually flakiness. If left untreated, the infection can affect the entire nail and even the skin below the nail.
  5. Corns and callouses – As we mentioned earlier, corns and callouses are often characterized by the dry thick skin. These painful little problems can typically be found on the balls of your feet, on or under your toes and the heel area – all depending on where there is excess pressure on your skin.

    If you suspect you have any of these issues – or any other foot problems – it’s best to make an appointment with your podiatrist and have them treated quickly and correctly before they turn into a bigger problem.
