Why See A Podiatrist for Your Skin and Nail Care?

Podiatry nail care is more than just a pedicure. It is about keeping your feet healthy and functioning, avoiding any complications that can arise from improper maintenance. These conditions can include toenail fungus infections, diseased nails, or various skin conditions.

Your podiatrist can recommend simple therapies to alleviate symptoms or conditions, provide you with prevention tips, or if necessary, take direct action to resolve your foot issue.

At The Foot Practice, we have a vast array of podiatric treatment solutions for treating a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Corns and calluses
  • Cracks under the feet and heels
  • Diabetes complications (e.g. foot sores)
  • Diseased nails
  • Fungal nail infections or onychomycosis
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Plantar warts or verruca
  • Skin and nail assessment
  • Thickened nails

At our podiatry clinic in Singapore, our clients receive individualised care for a wide range of foot conditions and symptoms by internationally-trained and specialised podiatrist.

 

How Can A Podiatrist Help with My Skin and Nail Condition?

Are your nails thick, yellow or discolured? Do you have a growth at the bottom of your foot that’s not painful? Or do you have a fungal infection that may be an indication of athlete’s foot?

Our podiatry practice offers treatments and solutions for a wide range of nail and skin disorders:

Hardened layers of skin accumulated to help your skin withstand friction or pressure. One typical cause is improper footwear that creates undue friction or pressure on the skin. Our podiatrist will utilise a scalpel to extract the dead skin and provide you with the necessary steps to prevent them from coming back. If necessary, topical medication or antibiotic ointment to quell an infection or remove the callus may be used.

People with diabetes need to be extra careful about their feet. A simple condition can turn into an unfortunate complication if not treated adequately.

Diabetics can lose sensation in their feet, and may be unaware to tend to a cut or wound. Diabetes limits blood flow to the extremities, such as the feet and lower limbs, which slows the process of a wound healing, leaving it vulnerable to infection.

The Foot Practice conducts diabetic foot screenings to assess the extent to which diabetes is affecting your foot to manage future care and injury prevention. If you are diabetic, it is easier to prevent the wound rather than to treat it. If our podiatrist locates an injury, they can conduct diabetic wound management, to kill any infection present, removing dead skin, or other treatment strategies.

One of the most common nail conditions. This is when the nail digs into the side or corner of the soft tissue surrounding the nail, resulting in irritation, redness, or swelling. Our podiatrist will remove the ingrown portion of the nail, and may provide you with treatment to kill the infection. If you find that you are consistently experiencing ingrown toenails, we can help you with significantly lowering your chances of future ingrown toenails.

Also known as onychomycosis, is an infection that leaves nails brittle, discoloured, and deteriorate the nail plate and the nail bed. Our fungus specialist provides toenail fungal infection treatment using a revolutionary naturally-derived solution from Spirulina that effectively attacks and destroys nail fungus while repairing damaged skin. We will also provide you with tips for preventing nail fungus infections from worsening for people with underlying conditions.

Otherwise known as verruca warts, are a type of wart that appear on the sole of the foot. They are viral, contagious, and often, painful and can linger for up to two years. Our podiatrist will appropriately treat your plantar warts with salicylic acid or other chemical treatments that remove the unhealthy skin to leave healthy skin behind.

What Is A Medical Pedicure and How it Can Help with My Condition?

One podiatry nail care service available to you, even if you do not have any of the conditions above, is the medical pedicure. The medical pedicure is performed by our podiatrist. It is completely different from an aesthetic or salon pedicure.

To begin, our podiatrist will assess your skin and nails and cater the rest of the medical pedicure to suit your foot’s needs. This can include treatment to remove hard skin or calluses to reduce pain and increase comfort, or the use of proper technique to cut nails to prevent diseased, ingrown toenails or nail fungus treatment in Singapore.

If you suffer from any of the mentioned conditions, are prone to infection, or simply want healthier feet, make an appointment with The Foot Practice today to for skin and nail treatments!
