Illness and Diseases

Fungal Infections

Commonly affecting skin and nails, fungal infections are often dismissed, or managed poorly for a variety of reasons. Prompt diagnosis and treatment for the correct length of time should effect a permanent cure. Fungal infections in a diabetic patient need aggressive quick treatment as they can predispose to more serious complications.

Diabetic foot management

Diabetes can cause devastating consequences on the feet and lower legs. The podiatrists role is education, screening, management and prevention of the manifestation of diabetes-related complications affecting the feet. 

The diabetic patient needs assistance and education! Therefore the Podiatrist is considered one of the most important role players in the team that treats and manages a person suffering from diabetes. Force plate analysis of the diabetic foot is a very important screening tool to prevent foot ulceration.

Corns and Calluses

Poor foot posture, changed toe shape and abnormal weight distribution in the feet can cause corns and callouses on the feet. The management is palliative with painless scalpel reduction of these lesions. Determining the cause of a callous or corn is crucial to create a lasting management protocol that provides relief. Therefore the ongoing management may vary from one patient to the next.

Varruca (warts)

Warts are formed as a response of the skin to a viral infection (usually transmitted in wet public places) and causes a small epidermal pappiloma. The management of varrucae varies according to the size and location of the lesion, as well as the age of the patient. It is therefore essential to diagnose the lesion correctly, as many corns are managed as varrucae, and vice versa. 

The best advice is to get the lesion examined by a professional. Avoid home remedies, as these can aggravate varruca. The bigger a wart is, the more difficult it is to manage.

Ingrown toenails

It's funny how ingrown nails are always seen as a joke condition. The truth is that anyone who has had one will know how painful it can be. Treatment of ingrown nails is either conservative, with simple reduction of the nail shoulder giving relief, or a simple and quick surgical procedure done in the chair, under local anaesthetic giving a permanent solution to a very problematic condition.
