People call a doctor of podiatry for help diagnosing and treating a wide array of foot and ankle problems. If you have persistent foot pain, redness or swelling, it is important to visit your doctor. Self-diagnosis and treatment with over-the-counter remedies or "bathroom surgery" may delay treatment and cause more problems. Some foot problems are inherited or could be the sign of another health condition.
Please contact our office if you experience one of the following:
Thickening toenails that cause discomfort. Heel pain accompanied by a fever, redness (sometimes warmth), or numbness; tingling in the heel; persistent heel pain without putting any weight or pressure on your heel; or pain that is not alleviated by ice or over-the-counter painkillers (such as aspirin, ibuprofen or acetaminophen). Diabetics with poor circulation who develop Athlete's Foot.
