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.

February is Raynaud's Awareness Month. Raynaud's is a common illness that affects extremities. Cold temperatures, or changes in temperature, can stop blood from reaching area's such as fingers and toes. Sufferers can begin to have issues such as chilblains and nails hardening and breaking away from the nail bed. Poor circulation can also lead to problems. If you have any concerns about your feet with this condition, ask to see one of our Podiatrists.

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.
