Exceptional Skin and Toenail Care in Utah
If you are experiencing pain, redness, swelling, discoloration, or a strong foot odor, you likely have a skin condition or toenail issue that requires treatment. These symptoms can be signs of ingrown toenails, foot fungus, dermatitis, or other nail and skin conditions. Symptoms often seem insignificant when they start, like a small growth on the skin or a slight discoloration on the toenail. If these symptoms are ignored, however, the foot or nail condition often becomes more painful and more difficult to treat.
Common Skin Conditions and Toenail Problems
Some skin and toenail conditions can’t be treated at home and require professional help from a podiatrist. Whether painful or just aesthetically upsetting, we treat skin and nail issues in children, teens, adults, and the elderly. While we treat all nail and skin conditions of the foot and ankle, there are some conditions we see more often than others.
Our Treatment Approach to Skin Conditions and Toenail Issues
It's important to note that many skin and toenail conditions can be prevented at home. Ingrown toenails for example, while they are a common inherited disorder, are also caused by trauma to the toe, wearing shoes that are too tight, or cutting the nail too short. Many skin conditions of the feet, like nail fungus or athlete's foot, are commonly picked up from moist public areas, such as locker rooms, swimming pools, and public showers. These infections then thrive in moist, warm environments, like sweaty, tight shoes.
Preventing skin and nail conditions is important to ensure the best outcome and vital in avoiding continuous treatment. No matter what you are experiencing with your toenails or the skin on your feet, we can help. We care about your foot care and will work together to get your feet back to their healthy state.
