Even the most vital feet and ankles need the proper care. A podiatrist can help you with pain, diagnosing your feet issues, and provide a wide range of treatment and medical care for problems you may experience at some point. However, there are specific times in your life you will need to come to a podiatrist though you may not realize you should.
Occasions When You Need to See a Podiatrist
- If you have diabetes- people with diabetes are twice as likely to have foot problems as those who don’t. They range from experiencing warts to ingrown toenails, skin lesions, and issues with mobility. You should also never cut your toenails as a person with diabetes and have a podiatrist do it for you.
- If you have ingrown toenails- ingrown toenails can lead to pain and infection. They also affect the toe and how you move. Redness, swelling, and drainage may occur, and in some cases, the podiatrist will have to remove your nail. At the easiest, you will need a particular medication.
- If you have bunions- if you have a bump at the base of your big toe, you have a bunion. While it won’t bother you most of the time, it can lead to pain and get worse if you leave it untreated. Padding, taping, and medication are all options that the podiatrist can help you with.
- If you have foot odor- it can be related to many different issues, but a podiatrist can give you a diagnosis right away and begin treating it at once.
