Do you have any general footcare advice?
Nails that grow too long can cause soreness, infection, and ulceration as they press against the end of the shoe. The more you take care of your feet, the more likely they will stay supple as they age. Make sure to check your feet regularly, daily if necessary, and moisturise them (but not between the toes).

I think I have athletes' foot. Can you tell me more about it?
Athlete's foot is a fungal infection of the skin that can cause intense itching, blistering or peeling of the skin, redness and scaling of the skin. This condition can occur on moist, waterlogged skin, typically between the fourth and fifth toes. It can also occur on dry, flaky skin around the heels or elsewhere on the foot.

I have fungal nails. What treatment is available?
Your GP can prescribe oral medications for fungal nails. Infections usually disappear within three to six months, but can sometimes take longer. It is also possible to treat fungal nails with over the counter remedies such as anti-fungal nail lacquer. It may take up to a year for these treatments to take effect, as a nail takes this length of time to grow out completely.

I have an ingrown toenail what can be done?
An ingrown toenail is where a piece of nail pierces the flesh of the toe. It may feel as if you have a splinter, and it may be extremely painful and inflamed or infected. In more severe cases, it can cause pus and bleeding. Ingrown toenails usually affect the big toe, but they can also occur on other toes.
