Skin and Nail Problems

Are you embarrassed to wear open-toed shoes or to show your feet at all in public? Are your feet itchy or in pain…and you can't figure out why?

Skin and nail problems on your feet can be incredibly unsightly and cause constant discomfort in your daily life. Fortunately, many conditions involving toenails and the skin on your feet are both common and treatable. The sooner your visit the experienced North Carolina podiatrists at Gaston Foot & Ankle Specialists, the sooner you can get back to doing the things that make you happy.

We treat many skin and nail problems at our Gastonia, North Carolina, office, including:

Corns and Calluses. These both develop when dead skin cells on the foot accumulate to form thick, hardened areas. Corns and calluses can be very annoying and painful.

Toenail Fungus
. Fungus on your toenails isn't just a cosmetic blemish; left untreated, it can become a serious problem. Fungal toenail infections can go on for years without causing pain, but they are still infections and need to be treated as such.

Warts are skin growths on your feet and can be contagious since the virus enters through tiny cuts or breaks in that area. Both common warts and plantar warts are not considered dangerous, but they can be annoying, unattractive, and uncomfortable.

Ingrown Toenails
. Most often found in the big toe, ingrown toenails are the result of your toenail curling into your skin. Left untreated, ingrown toenails can become infected and require surgery.

Athlete's Foot.
This skin disease is caused by fungus, which grows easily in damp, dark areas like your shoes. Symptoms will normally include dry, itchy skin, inflammation, and blisters.
