Skin problems with the feet can sometimes develop over time, while some seem to come about all at once. For example, you may notice that your feet have started to swell, but ignore it until they have swollen to the point of discomfort. Or you may wake up one day and see fungus on your toes that you have never noticed before. Whatever the symptoms may be in your individual case, our Newtown foot doctor at Newtown Foot & Ankle Specialists can help diagnose and treat your skin disorder.
We offer treatment for the following types of skin problems:
- Athlete's foot (tinea pedis)
- Burning feet
- Smelly feet
- Foot odor
Taking Care of Ulcers & Foot Wounds
Have you started to notice ulcers or other types of wounds on the bottom of your feet? There are a number of different reasons why your feet can become wounded, such as overuse, inflammation, and diabetes. Our Newtown foot doctor is qualified to treat all types of foot wounds. Unlike wounds caused by trauma or injury, ulcers are open wounds that are caused by skin that becomes callused, separated, and infected.
Suffering from Fungus or Foot Odor?
If you keep your feet clean and dry but still notice a persisting odor, it may be as a result of a condition called hyperhidrosis. This condition causes feet to sweat excessively, which can lead to discomfort and a consistent odor. The growth of fungus on the feet can also cause an unwanted smell. Fortunately, we offer treatments for both of these conditions that can help to treat both the underlying condition and the symptoms.
