A podiatrist or chiropodist can help you with common foot problems, including ingrown toenails and bunions.

Podiatrists can be thought of as a type of foot doctor. They can give you and your family advice on how to look after your feet and what type of shoes to wear.

What does a podiatrist do?

They can treat and alleviate day-to-day foot problems including:

  • toenail problems such as thickened, fungal or ingrown toenails, corns and calluses
  • verrucas
  • athlete’s foot
  • smelly feet
  • dry and cracked heels
  • flat feet
  • bunions
How can a podiatrist help?

You may want to see a podiatrist for advice and treatment if you have painful feet, thickened or discoloured toenails, cracks or cuts in the skin, growths such as warts, scaling or peeling on the soles or any other foot-related problem.

Podiatrists can also supply orthotics, which are tailor-made insoles, padding and arch supports to relieve arch or heel pain. You put the orthotic device into your shoe to re-align your foot, take pressure off vulnerable areas of your foot or simply to make your shoes more comfortable.

Even if your feet are generally in good condition, you might consider having a single session of podiatry to have the hard skin on your feet removed, toenails clipped, to find out if you’re wearing the right shoes (take your shoes with you for specific advice on footwear) or just to check that you’re looking after your feet properly.
