There are lots of common issues many of us experience when it comes to our toenails and the skin on our feet. In most cases, there are simple and straightforward treatment options that can clear up the conditions.
However, it’s important to seek advice from a qualified podiatrist as soon as you notice any symptoms. The quicker you are to start treating an infection, rash, ingrown toenail or verruca, the quicker and more effectively you can relieve the discomfort.

Common skin conditions

Skin Infections

There are many variations of skin infections, including bacterial, fungal and parasitic. If you’ve noticed any change to your skin’s appearance, redness or swelling, discharge, itching or a bad smell, it could be an infection. It’s important to get it checked out and treated as soon as possible.

Corns + Calluses

Areas of thickened skin that develop in response to friction or pressure. They often occur on the feet but can also form on the hands and fingers. Corns and calluses can be painful and uncomfortable. In severe cases, your podiatrist may need to remove the corns or calluses.


Also known as plantar warts, verrucae are growths on the soles of the feet. They are caused by a virus and usually appear as small, round bumps. Plantar warts can be painful and require professional treatment. We provide evidence based proven solutions for these infections.

Athletes Foot

A fungal infection that usually starts between the toes. Symptoms include itchiness, redness, and scaling. Athlete's foot can be spread through contact with contaminated surfaces, like changing room floors.

Moles + Lesions

If you have a concerning mole or skin lesion on your feet, we can carry out a dermoscopy or biopsy to check for melanoma or carcinoma. It can be worrying to notice a growing or changing mole, therefore we recommend getting them checked out as soon as possible for peace of mind.

Common nail conditions

Fungal Nail Infections

Also known as onychomycosis, this is caused by a fungus that penetrates the nail. It can cause discolouration, thickening, and crumbling of the nail, and, in severe cases, you may experience pain, swelling, and inflammation. If left untreated, a fungal nail infection can spread to other nails, skin, or even other parts of the body.

Damaged Nail

Damaged nails are often caused by infection, not trimming properly or injury to the nail or nail bed. If your nail has become painful, loose or deformed, it’s important to get it checked to prevent any further damage. Although a last resort, if surgery is required, MyFootMedic offers local anaesthesia to ensure a painless, comfortable procedure.

Ingrown Toenails

This happens when the edges of the nail grow into the skin surrounding the nail. You may be more likely to get an ingrown toenail if you trim your nails too short or if they constantly rub against your shoes. It’s important to treat an ingrown toenail effectively, as it can become painful and lead to infections.


Once we’ve identified the cause of your nail or skin issue, we can ensure you get the correct treatment. As well as offering a range of routine care services to keep your feet in top condition, we can provide the following treatments to tackle specific ailments..


Effective against verrucas (plantar warts) that haven’t responded to topical treatment, verruca needling involves using a fine needle to puncture the wart after numbing. This triggers an immune response that helps fight the infection.


Ideal for stubborn fungal infections, micro-penetration is the process of creating small holes in the nail plate. These holes ensure topical medication can filter down into the infection beneath the nail plate.


An excellent option for ingrown toenails or infected toenails, nail surgery (also known as a partial or total nail avulsion), involves removing part or all of the nail plate. Depending on the problem, a decision will be made to either prevent or allow the nail to regrow.


Excisional skin surgery may be recommended to remove a painful skin lesion, such as a reoccurring corn, verruca or abnormal growth. These procedures are performed under local anaesthesia and may include stitches.


Professional nail cutting and reduction of corns and calluses, as well as general foot health check-ups, keep your feet as comfortable as possible and ensures you are advised on the best possible treatment for any conditions that arise.
