We provide podiatric pedicures, cutting and tidying the nails and the skin on and around the toes

Fungal infections

  • Fungal nail infections are a result of one of two types of fungi invading the nail plate and often arises following a tinea infection
  • Athlete’s foot is another fungal infection which causes the skin to peel which become itchy and turn red. Athlete’s foot can be passed from person to person through direct contact

Viral infections

  • Verrucas (also known as plantar warts) are a viral infection of the skin and typically occur following minor breaks in the skin. Plantar warts are so called because they occur on the underside (plantar surface) of the foot.

Corns are areas of dense skin that occur in areas of high pressure or friction and often occur on or between the toes. While they do not have a ‘root’ they are much deeper than callus with a core.

Callus is a thickening of the skin due to pressure or friction but unlike corns they do not have a core, or centre, and are usually less uncomfortable.
