Skin and Toenail Conditions
Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection that usually occurs between the toes. It commonly occurs in people whose feet have become sweaty while confined within tight fitting shoes. Symptoms include a scaly rash that usually can cause itching, stinging and burning.
Nail fungus is a common condition that can begin as a discolored spot under the tip of your nail. A fungal infection can spread and affect other nails and cause your nails to become discolored, thickened and crumble at the edge.
Ingrown toenails are among the most common and painful of foot problems. An ingrown nail occurs when part of the nail pushes into the skin. The nail acts the same as any foreign body such as a dirty splinter would and creates swelling and local infection.
Plantar warts are caused by the Human Papillomavirus Virus (HPV). These warts can be painful and appear as hard, grainy or flesh in color and appear on the heels or balls of the feet.
