Whether you are suffering from an ingrown toenail, a plantar wart, athlete’s foot, or any other foot-related condition, podiatrists are the right type health professional to consult. Their extensive experience also allows them to treat the diabetic foot, which often requires specialized treatment. Here are some of the Clinique podiatrique de l’Estrie’s most frequently treated foot conditions.
Ingrown toenails occur when part of the toenail penetrates the surrounding flesh. They cause mild inflammation and pain in the affected area.
Onychomycosis (fungal infection of the nail) is a common condition among adults, and especially among seniors.
Hyperkeratosis (callus or corn) is caused by the accumulation and hardening of dead cells which accumulate in the outer layers of the skin.
Plantar warts are benign tumours caused by a human papillomavirus infection (HPV) of the outer layers of the skin.
Diabetic foot is a complication of diabetes.
