Are your feet looking a little beat up these days? No judgment here.
Feet and toenails are subject to a lot of abuse on a day-to-day basis. They spend a lot of time trapped in sweaty shoes (that may or may not fit just right). They deal with pressure, weight, friction, and impact forces constantly. They sometimes struggle to get adequate circulation.
The combined effect of all these factors is that skin and nail problems are very common. But does that mean they are simply a “fact of life”? No!
Skin and nail conditions aren’t just “surface” problems—they matter to you, and can often either be the first step toward a bigger problem, or evidence that there’s already something more serious going on behind the scenes.
At Lakes Foot and Ankle Associates, we can help you restore a healthy, clear, smooth shine to your skin and toenails. You’ll look better, you’ll feel better, you’ll be better protected against injury and infection—and you won’t be so embarrassed to head out to the beach in your sandals!
Read on to learn more about some of the most common skin and nail conditions we treat.
