Solving Foot Skin Disorders at Hunt Footcare

Foot skin disorders can be, at best, irritating and uncomfortable, so at Hunt Footcare we work to both reduce the immediate symptoms and then prevent the problem reoccurring. Our dermatology (skin care) services cover all common foot skin problems, including:

  • athlete’s foot
  • dry or itching skin
  • corns and calluses
  • warts and verrucas
  • toenail problems
  • fungal nails
  • bacterial and viral skin problems
  • diabetic skin care and infections
  • eczema (atopic dermatitis)

Dry Skin on Feet and Legs

Our central-heated home environments and cars in winter, and hot sunshine in summers, can cause your skin to dry out and start to itch. Our skin care team will assess your dry skin condition and determine the cause, as dry skin and eczema can also be caused by infections, thyroid problems and endocrine changes that require proper treatment. So if dry skin itching is driving you to distraction, call us for an appointment and set your skin on the road to recovery.

Psoriasis on the foot

Psoriasis of the feet is a problem that often affects people with diabetes, but might strike anyone from early adulthood onwards.

Psoriasis is a skin disorder where small red, crusty areas appear on the skin covered in silver-coloured scales, and may also affect fingernails and toenails. Psoriasis is not infectious, but it is a long-lasting condition that requires treatment to improve symptoms and the appearance of affected skin.

Psoriasis is caused by certain skin cells growing too quickly, resulting in a build-up of immature cells on the skin surface, which then die and flake off. The result is an itchy, sore patch that may bleed and spread. Research has shown that psoriasis may flare up due to triggers such as stress, hormonal changes or an adverse reaction to some medications.

Psoriasis may also affect toenails, creating small pits or dents, and in some cases, causing the nail to grow abnormally and separate from the nail bed.

Specialist Technology Treatments for Skin Conditions

At Hunt Footcare we have invested in the latest laser technology for the treatment of skin ulcers and for surgical procedures on the skin. We also have a dermascope, a diagnostic tool that enables us to examine skin lesions in great detail. At the other end of the technology scale, we have onsite shoe sterilizers which ‘clean’ your shoes of any residual fungal or bacterial infections.

At Hunt Footcare Clinics, we can help treat both psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, so you can get on with life more easily.
