Infections

 

Dealing with infections is a normal part of life and the common understanding is that most people with healthy immune systems are able to fend off common infections without the help of medical treatment. While this may be true for most parts of the body, infections of the feet can present another set of problems. Because feet are consistently in contact with dirt and other materials that may worsen and infection, it is necessary to be proactive when tending to foot infections.

It is also important to deal quickly with foot infections due to the amount of use that the foot gets during a typical day. Unlike other body parts that may be given rest during the healing process, it is difficult to discontinue using your feet for any amount of time. Unless you are suffering from severe trauma, a foot infection is typically not enough to keep you from your daily routine.

There are many available treatment options for infections of the foot. The recommended course of treatment will vary depending upon the location, type and severity of the infection. If you are suffering from a foot infection, please see a podiatrist immediately to ensure that the infection does not spread and is healed as quickly and painlessly as possible.
