Smelly Feet & Athlete’s Foot
The medical problem of foot odour is fairly frequent. It’s caused by an accumulation of perspiration on the skin, which leads to bacteria development. Bad scents are caused by these microorganisms. Bromodosis can also be caused by fungal diseases such as athlete’s foot.
Athlete’s foot (tinea pedis) is a fungus that generally starts between the toes and spreads to the rest of the foot. People with sweaty feet who are restricted in tight-fitting shoes are more likely to develop this condition. A scaly rash, which causes itching, stinging, and burning, are some of the signs and symptoms of Athlete’s foot.
How Can A Podiatrist Help You?
Podiatrists may assist with all of the above, as well as much more. For any type of foot discomfort, thickened and/or discoloured toenails, permanent cracks or wounds in the skin, or other skin diseases such as scaly/peeling skin or abnormal growths such as warts, patients can seek counsel and treatment.
In addition to addressing foot problems, biomechanical difficulties may be addressed by using orthotics, which are custom-made insoles that are worn inside shoes to alter the way we walk and move. If you have heel or arch problems, they can also provide cushioning and arch supports. The gait of a patient can be studied to see how each foot touches the ground when walking. Feet will be realigned to cure any biomechanical abnormalities, such as foot discomfort, joint discomfort, and even back discomfort, by utilising a properly manufactured orthotic or insert in shoes.
Benefits Of Podiatry
Even if your feet aren’t bothering you, it’s a good idea to consult a Podiatrist. A 30-60 minute visit with a Podiatry professional may remove any undesirable hard skin, inspect and trim toenails (which can get more difficult as you get older), and offer advice on proper footwear. Any issues discovered during a visit may usually be remedied on the spot. If everything appears to be in order, a frequent foot examination may be beneficial to confirm that everything is in order and to maximise their long-term health. Because feet are so important to living a mobile life, taking care of them is an investment in the future.
