Foot Skin Conditions

Corns and Calluses – A callus is a thickened area of skin, often with a yellow colour and found on the heel or ball of the foot. A corn is smaller, deeper and often found at the bottom of the foot or in between toes. Both can be an unsightly nuisance and cause debilitating pain, depending on the severity of the corn or callus you have.

Blisters – The number one complaint for podiatrists, a blister is a small bubble on the skin filled with liquid. Blisters often form in locations on the foot that experience high friction. A podiatrist can treat and help prevent blisters for patients.

Skin Atrophy – Skin atrophy is a reduction of skin volume in the upper layers of skin, there are many reasons why this may happen. Prolonged use of steroid medication, endocrine changes and age. This causes the skin to become fragile and prone to injuries that may lead to ulcerations. The skin will starts to look fragile with a shiny appearance.

If you are concerned about any of the above conditions please contact Pivotal Motion Podiatry for assessment, diagnosis and treatment services.
