Foot Problems and Diseases

INGROWN TOENAILS

Ingrown toenails occur when the nail has been badly cut or simply cut too short. This is a common problem that can affect any nail, but more often that of the big toe. The nail irritates the surrounding skin and the situation can get worse and become an infection. 

CORNS AND CALLUSES

The corns are a thickening of the skin, with an often painful core. They are more often found in areas where the pressure on the foot is greater. Corns can grow under the feet or between the toes.

PLANTAR WARTS

A plantar wart is the result of a skin infection. It resembles a small bulging point. Contamination occurs through direct contact of the virus on the skin. It is transmitted by an infected person, often in public places, such as swimming pools, spas, gymnasiums, etc.

NAIL FUNGUS

Onychomycosis, nail fungus, commonly known as nail fungi, is a nail infection created by harmful microorganisms. Infection occurs mainly in the feet, as these opportunistic microorganisms develop mainly in the presence of moisture, heat and darkness.

ATHLETE’S FOOT

Athlete’s foot is an infection caused by microorganisms that directly attack the skin of the feet. It is found between the toes and also below the feet. It is recognized by its reddish appearance, sometimes with cracks and often causing itching. Athlete foot infection is triggered by moisture, heat and darkness. 

BUNIONS ON THE FEET

The hallux abducto-valgus (HAV, bunion) is a bony deviation that appears on the side of the feet. This is a painful condition because of the pressure of the shoes in the big toe. This deformation is gradual and imposes itself over time.

HAMMER TOES

The hammer toe is characterized by deformity of the joints of the toe. The toe folds and is elevated compared to others, which is normally caused by muscle imbalance, a disease such as diabetes or a neurological condition. It can also be caused by wearing the wrong shoes.

PLANTAR FASCIITIS

Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of the plantar fascia, the fibrous band that connects the bone from the heel to the toes and passes through the arch of the foot. The plantar fascia plays a supporting role in the arch of the foot. Its inflammation usually causes pain in the heel, especially when it gets up.

LENOIR’S THORN

Heel spur or Lenoir’s thorn is an outgrowth that lies in the heel bone (not to be confused with plantar fasciitis). It is present in a rarer part of the population and can be diagnosed by x-rays. It is not painful. Rather, it is the inflammation of the fascia that will cause the pain.

FLAT FEET

Flat feet are a physical condition characterized by the sagging of the arch when you are standing. Your foot is therefore leaning on a larger area on the ground.
