Treating & Diagnosing Foot Skin Infections

Foot discomfort can be caused by various skin conditions, each requiring specific treatments to alleviate discomfort and promote healing. At our clinic, we specialize in diagnosing and treating a range of skin conditions that affect the feet, including:

  • Corns: Corns are small, thickened areas of skin that typically develop on the tops or sides of the toes. Treatment options for corns may include wearing proper footwear, using protective padding, applying over-the-counter corn pads, and, in some cases, trimming or removing the corn.
  • Calluses: Calluses are hardened areas of skin that commonly form on the soles of the feet. Treatment for calluses may involve using over-the-counter creams or pads to soften the area, regular exfoliation, wearing properly fitted shoes with cushioning, and, in severe cases, professional removal.
  • Heel Spurs: Heel spurs are bony growths that develop on the underside of the heel bone. Treatments for heel spurs may include wearing supportive shoes, using orthotic inserts, physical therapy exercises, corticosteroid injections, and, in rare cases, surgical intervention.
  • Ingrown Nails: Ingrown nails occur when the edges of the toenail grow into the surrounding skin, causing pain and inflammation. Treatment options for ingrown nails may involve soaking the foot in warm water, gently lifting the nail, wearing comfortable footwear, and, in severe cases, surgical removal of the ingrown portion of the nail.
  • Fungal Nails: Fungal nail infections are common and can cause thickened, discolored, and brittle nails. Treatments for fungal nails may include topical antifungal medications, oral antifungal medications, laser therapy, and maintaining good foot hygiene.
  • Plantar Warts: Plantar warts are caused by a viral infection and appear as small, rough growths on the soles of the feet. Treatment options for plantar warts may include over-the-counter treatments, cryotherapy (freezing), laser therapy, and, in some cases, surgical removal.

We provide comprehensive care for these conditions, tailoring treatments to suit your specific needs. Our team of specialists will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that targets the underlying cause of your condition and helps you find relief.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why might I need foot skin peeling treatment?

Foot skin peeling treatment may be needed for various reasons. Some common reasons include dry and rough skin, calluses, corns, or cracked heels. This treatment can help remove dead skin cells, moisturize the feet, and promote smoother skin. 

It can also provide relief from discomfort or pain caused by excessive skin buildup. Consulting with a podiatrist can help determine if foot skin peeling treatment is suitable for your specific condition.

Why is it important to get foot skin infection treatment as soon as possible?

It is crucial to seek foot skin infection treatment as soon as possible because early intervention helps prevent further complications and spread of the infection. Prompt treatment can alleviate discomfort, promote faster healing, and reduce the risk of long-term damage.

Does insurance usually cover foot skin fungus treatment?

In the state of Wisconsin, some insurance providers will cover the treatment for foot skin fungus, depending on the severity of the condition. However, coverage may vary from provider to provider. Advanced Foot and Ankle of Wisconsin is proud to accept insurance from a range of providers, but we recommend talking to your insurance provider about what is covered under your policy before seeking treatment.
