An infection of the foot, ankle, or leg can come in many shapes and sizes. Some can be very simple while others may be more serious. We have doctors specifically trained to help diagnose and properly treat all types of infections.
Foot infections can cause sensitivity and pain, impacting our ability to enjoy basic or daily activities, but many infections are relatively easy to treat after a proper diagnosis. Some of the most common are:
Taking special care of your feet can help you prevent many painful foot infections. Avoid fungal foot infections by always wearing sandals in any public shower, choosing breathable footwear that doesn’t trap moisture, and washing the feet every day with soap and water.
For patients with diabetes, it is important to check your feet daily for any signs of ulcers, looking for sores, blisters, redness, cuts, scratches, or other injuries. Use moisturizers to avoid skin dryness and cracking, and wash your feet regularly with soap and water, including the spaces between the toes.
