 TREATMENT FOR TINEA PEDIS

The treatment for tinea pedis is dictated by the type and severity of tinea you have. It is best to seek advice from your podiatrist for the most effective therapy. Treatment for the skin generally involves the application of a topical treatment such as an antifungal cream,sprays  and tinea powders for shoes and socks. It should be noted that creams, sprays  should be used for at least fourteen days to one month after you think the tinea has gone to ensure all dermatophytes have been eradicated. For the fungal toenails, topical liquids from the chemist are only effective in very early mild fungal infections, and require  daily application for many months with regular aggressive removal of the infected region. More moderate to severe infection are unfortunately resistant to the over the counter treatments. A new alternative is PACT Photodynamic therapy Antimicrobial Therapy, a safe,effective and painless treatment. One of the most important aspect of the management of tinea is prevention as recurrence

is common.

 

 

 

 Treatment for dry cracked heels

Dry cracked heels are often aggravated in the summer , due to increase in wearing open heeled shoes(th

ongs and sandels). The reduction in the natural urea(produced by the skin) content in the skin is a common cause of dry heels. Heel balms have become a common commodity for this condition, the main active ingredient being urea.

Here at Cheltenham Podiatry we have sourced and researched for the best available heel balm on the market with one of the highest concentrations of urea. We have this available and advise for daily application, particularly in summer.

Bunion Splint

The Arcus® Night Splint was developed to assist with correcting toe alignment and reducing the pain associated with Bunions , while you sleep. An Arcus® Night Splint when used in conjunction with exercises and orthotics, where appropriate, can help prevent further bunion development. Hallux Valgus (Bunions) can be an extremely painful condition, and can lead to severe forefoot deformities caused by weakness of the tendons and ligaments. It is largely an inherited condition which can be aggravated by high heeled and pointy toed shoes.
