Condition

Foot Health

There are many conditions that affect our feet, including; corns and calluses, verrucas, blisters, cracked heels, and nail fungus.

Corns, Calluses and Verrucae

When we walk or stand, our body weight is carried first on the heel and then on the ball of the foot, where the skin is thicker. The skin is thicker to withstand the pressure. The skin can grow thicker as a response to this pressure and friction. Consequently, corns and calluses can form as a protective response. Corns and calluses can appear anywhere on the foot where the skin rubs against a bone, a shoe, or the ground.

Verrucae are simply a wart that is usually found on the toes and soles of your feet. It is caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). This virus is contagious, and can only be caught by direct contact. The HPV flourishes in warm, moist environments such as swimming pools, changing room floors and bathrooms.

Callous
Verruca

"My problem was a large persistent Mosaic Veruca on the base of my heel. This verruca did not respond to 3 months of over counter treatments (Bazuka extra strength) nor to 4 treatments over 4 months of NHS cryotherapy. Margaret suggested that "Needling" treatment would have a significantly better chance of success. I'm delighted to say it has worked. Margaret also removed a corn & some hard skin whilst taking care of my foot. I found her to be very personable, professional & thorough & would have no hesitation in recommending her or for returning should I find the need."
