If you are prone to suffering with sweaty feet, it may be worth considering a regular moisturiser to help deodorize your feet. The Gehwol Green cream is gentle and helps reduce foot odour and normalises perspiration whilst moisturising your skin. It contains shea butter, jojoba oil, lavender and zinc as well as other ingredients to help you keep your feet fresh!

The last couple of weekends have shown us that Spring and Summer are just around the corner! With the warmer weather comes a change in footwear: we stop wearing socks in shoes, we may wear trainers more frequently as we increase activities... such as outdoor sports, we may also swim more often. All these factors can lead to sweaty and itchy feet and the possibilty of suffering with Athlete's Foot. You can find more information about sweaty feet and Athlete's Foot care here:

Sufferers of Diabetes are unfortunately prone to foot infections. These often lead to hospital admissions, urgent treatment or in worst cases, amputation. Prevention is paramount in controlling this condition. Always be on the lookout for changes in the condition of your feet; increase of fluid discharge from a break in the skin, redness or inflammation that spreads quickly, deepening colour of bruises or wounds, loss of sensation or increased heat felt. If you are concerned at all about your feet; please consult your Diabetic contact at your surgery or visit a Podiatrist.

Verruca’s can be painful, unsightly and frustratingly stubborn. They can vary in appearance and can develop as an isolated lump or re-occur in clusters. Some verruca’s will gradually disappear, others will prove to be very difficult to self-treat, often remaining for years, impervious to any over-the-counter treatments. We offer Cryotherapy at our Congresbury clinic. This involves freezing the verruca by spraying it with a strong liquid nitrogen solution. We will usually advise a course of 3 treatments as 2-3 week intervals.
If you have any concerns about your verruca, come and see one of our Podiatrists in Congresbury.
