Common Foot Ailments
Athlete’s Foot - This is a skin disease caused by a fungus. This fungus most commonly attacks the feet where it thrives best because of the warm, dark and sometimes moist environment it finds inside the shoe. The main cause of athlete’s foot is the lowering of the skin’s resistance. Practice good foot hygiene! The skin must be bathed daily; be kept dry by changing socks or tights frequently; and a mild fungicidal drying powder used on the feet and in the shoes.Corns – Corns are caused by friction and pressure. They do not have roots and the cause is also often due to bone deformity.
Bunions - These are caused by a weakness of the ligaments and muscular structures of the foot and leg. The tendency for them to form may be hereditary, but factors such as stress and strain and interference from shoes can also bring about this deformity. When these joints are red, swollen or tender, see a Chiropodist, as these signs may indicate the formation of a bunion, arthritis, gout or infection. A bunion on the joint of the little toe is known as a tailor’s bunion.
Callouses - These are a symptom, not a disease, and the cause must be corrected before the callouses can be cured. Chronic corns and callouses require periodic professional care. However, in some instances, surgical or orthopedic measures may be required to effect a cure. On no account should one engage in home treatments – foot infection is dangerous.
Excessive Perspiration - This can cause foot odour. Daily bathing and regular application of a medicated foot powder
can help in many cases. When these fail, you should visit a Chiropodist for professional advice.
Warts (or Verrucae) - These are often mistaken for corns or callouses. A wart has a blood and nerve supply of its own. They are usually extremely painful and tend to spread if left untreated.
