Frequently Asked Questions
- I have a yellow discoloration of my toenails. I have tried a few over-the counter creams with no success. Any suggestions?
- The yellow discoloration certainly sounds like you have a fungus. The only true way to make the diagnosis is to have your podiatrist take a sample of your nail and have it tested to see if there is a fungus present.
If there is a fungus present, and the fungus is in the early stages, the podiatrist may be able to thin the nail down and prescribe a topical medication. More often than not, it is necessary to take an oral medication to alleviate the fungus, if the fungus is more advanced.
For the best diagnosis and treatment of toenail fungus you can depend upon, contact Podiatry Affiliates today to schedule your appointment.
- I have a hammertoe. What can be done to fix it without having surgery ?
- A hammertoe is a retracting and "humped-up" appearance of a toe. It is usually caused by an imbalance of the muscles in the foot and improper mechanics of the foot. The easiest, non-surgical treatment would be to purchase a shoe with a "deep" toe box to prevent rubbing on the top of the toe. There are also multiple cushions you can purchase to protect the toe from shoe pressure.
- I have had planter’s warts for several years. I have used acid plasters, freeze-off medications, and duct tape. If there anything that can be done without having them surgically removed?
- Warts are a virus and can be very difficult to cure. There are many treatment options available for planter's warts including salicylic acid therapy, CO2 laser, pulse dye laser, as well as combinations of therapies. There are also higher strength acids, such as trichloroacetic acid and cantherone. Success rates vary based upon the case. There is, however, no guaranteed wart therapy - including surgical removal.
If you suffer from warts, contact Podiatry Affiliates today for a careful diagnosis and discussion of the options available to you.
- I have been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis. I had 2 cortisone injections and still have pain. What else can be done?
- Plantar fasciitis is due to the inflammation of the band on the bottom of the foot that attaches into the heel bone. Try stretching exercises of the calf muscle (wall push-ups); or, try bending the front of the foot upwards with a towel around the toes, to stretch the bottom of the foot; or try rolling the foot over a golf ball or rolling pin for one to two minutes.
Always wear a good supportive shoe and try an over-the-counter arch support.If all that fails, seek the advice of a podiatrist who may recommend a custom made orthotic for better results. At Podiatry Affiliates, we would be happy to examine your situation and discuss the best options available to you. Contact us today to schedule your appointment.
- I get a tingling and numb sensation in my toes when I walk. What could cause this?
- The most common reason for a tingling or numb sensation in two adjacent toes is a pinched nerve or a condition called a neuroma. This is an irritation and inflammation of the nerve, usually between the third and fourth toes. This can be diagnosed by clinical examination and either an ultra-sound study or MRI.
Treatment may include steroid injections and oral anti-inflammatory medications to calm the nerve irritation and a shoe insert to off-load the area. Occasionally, surgery may be necessary.
If you're concerned with the tingling or numbness you feel when you walk, contact Podiatry Affiliates today.
