Find out what foot issues you can handle on your own and when to turn to a podiatrist for help.foot problems

With the growing love of the Fitbit and other fitness-promoting apps and programs, it’s no wonder that the average American is clocking about 10,000 steps a day. That’s a lot of steps! But then again, we don’t have to tell your feet that. They are working hard for you all day long, in ways you may have not even thought about. If you do develop one of these foot problems our Indianapolis foot doctor Dr. Jeffrey Agricola is here to help:

  • Athlete’s foot
  • Heel pain
  • Bunions
  • Ingrown Toenails

Athlete's Foot

While it’s easy to treat athlete’s foot, often with just over-the-counter antifungal creams, it’s important that you don’t just ignore this problem. If left untreated, it can continue to spread to the toenails, where it will be more challenging to treat. If your symptoms are severe or if symptoms don’t seem to change within three weeks then this is the perfect time to call our Indianapolis foot doctor.

Heel Pain

There are many reasons why someone might experience heel pain but an inflammatory condition known as plantar fasciitis is the most common cause. While plantar fasciitis can go away on its own if you just rest the foot, avoid certain physical activities and take anti-inflammatory medications, if symptoms don’t improve (or if they get worse) in a week then give us a call.

Bunions

A bunion is a joint deformity that often affects the big toe joint and often leads to swelling and pain near the joint. The pain may get worse if you wear high heels or tight-fitted shoes or if you are pretty active. A bunion is progressive so you will want to make sure that you know how to properly manage your symptoms. We can provide you with the advice you need to make sure your bunion doesn’t get worse.

Ingrown Toenails

This painful condition is most likely to happen if you trim your nail too close to the skin, resulting in the edge of the nail growing into the skin of your toe. While an ingrown toenail can be soaked in warm salt water to ease discomfort while it heals, if the pain is severe, if you notice redness or warmth to the touch, or if there is pus then you need to see your foot doctor in Indianapolis right away.

Prestige Podiatry is proud to serve the Carmel, Greenwood and Indianapolis, IN, areas and provide quality foot care to those who need it most. Whether you are dealing with foot pain from an athletic injury or you have a chronic health problem that affects your feet, we are here for you.
