Types of Skin Problems
- Bacteria Infection
- Itchy Skin
The skin provides a remarkably good barrier against bacterial infections. Although many bacteria come in contact with or reside on the skin, they are normally unable to establish an infection. When bacterial skin infections do occur, they can range in seriousness as well, from amputation to life threatening.
Itchy skin is an uncomfortable, irritating sensation that can make scratching irresistible. It seems simple. When you itch, you scratch. But itchy skin can have hundreds of possible causes. In the foot and ankle the most common causes are tinea pedis (athletes foot), dry skin, callus formation, irritation, seronegative arthritis or internal diseases such as diabetes, liver disease or kidney disease.
Skin problems that cause everyday inconvenience can quickly become harmful. If a skin problem has been persisting for some time despite attempts at at-home treatment, it is important to have it diagnosed and treated immediately.
Diagnosing Skin Problems
Patients in need of treatment for skin problems will need to schedule a consultation with one of our experts.
The doctor will examine the patient’s feet to determine the severity and potential causes of the skin issues. They will also ask questions regarding the patient’s general health and medical history.
Once the nature of the skin problem has been determined, the doctor will be able to recommend the proper solution. If you have any questions about the course of treatment that has been prescribed, make sure to ask during this consultation.
