As a teacher, I am on my feet for a good portion of the day. At the end of the day, the balls of my feet felt as though I was walking on shards of hot glass. After a few Laser treatments, the sensation started to subside and my feet became much more comfortable to walk on. The pain lessens with each treatment. I am happy to say that I even walked nine holes of golf for the first time in a year
I am writing to thank you for your help over the recent months with my toe infection. I am so pleased with the results and the overall experience. It was relatively painless and there was no down-time or recovery time! Every appointment offered me significant improvement. The laser treatments were the safest and easiest medical choice for me and I am so glad I did not have to undergo surgery.
I want to thank Doctor Fosdick for the pain relief I am having. My feet feel much better. I also want to thank his staff for following up with the insurance company and getting them to pay partially for my orthotics as they initially said they would.
Athlete's foot (tinea pedis) is a fungal infection of the skin that causes scaling, flaking, and itching of affected areas. It is typically transmitted in moist areas where people walk barefoot, such as showers or bathhouses. Although the condition typically affects the feet, it can spread to other areas of the body, including the groin. Athlete's foot can be prevented by good hygiene, and is treated by a number of pharmaceutical and other treatments.
Athlete's foot causes scaling, flaking, and itching of the affected skin. Blisters and cracked skin may also occur, leading to exposed raw tissue, pain, swelling, and inflammation. Secondary bacterial infection can accompany the fungal infection, sometimes requiring a course of oral antibiotics.
Since you can transmit athlete's foot to other members of your family, it is important that everyone you come in contact with get checked for the fungus.
