Toenail problems

Plantar warts

These viral skin lesions are often seen in both children and adults. Diagnosis of a suspected plantar wart can be made by a Podiatrist, and a treatment plan can be put in place.

Callus and corns

Callus and corns can cause much discomfort on the foot. A Podiatrist can remove these areas of hardened skin and provide pain relief. Assessment of the cause of these problems will be made, and advice offered to prevent reoccurrence.

Fungal toenail infections

Thickened, discoloured or crumbly toenails can be a sign of fungal nail infection. If you suspect this may be the case, a Podiatrist can assess and diagnose this problem. Treatment advice and methods to prevent future nail infections can be provided.

Ingrown toenails

Ingrown toenails are a common but painful condition in both children and adults. Often the nail border will become painful, inflamed and sometimes infected.

Prompt attention from a Podiatrist can rectify the problem, and most importantly resolve the associated pain. A Podiatrist will assess the cause of the ingrown toenail and provide advice on how to avoid reoccurrence and infection.
