Ganglion cysts are common harmless lumps that can appear on the wrist, foot, or other parts of the body. They are not a cause for concern but can be uncomfortable. Specifically, a ganglion cyst on top of the wrist is a notable occurrence.
These cysts exhibit variable sizes, with fluctuations in size, and may abruptly disappear, only to reappear later. If you notice any changes in size or feel uncomfortable, please contact us. We are here to provide personalized assistance and effective solutions for your well-being.
A plantar fibroma is a fibrous knot (nodule) in the arch of the foot. Nestling within the plantar fascia, a tissue band stretching from heel to toes on the foot's underside. A harmless plantar fibroma can grow in one or both feet and usually needs treatment to shrink or disappear. The exact reasons for this condition are not clear, but there are various plantar fibroma treatment options.
Athlete's foot is a skin infection caused by fungus. Fungus commonly attacks the feet because it thrives in a dark, moist, and warm environment, such as a shoe. Athlete's foot usually produces itchy, dry, scaling skin.
It commonly appears on the soles of the feet and between the toes. In advanced cases, inflammation, cracks, and blisters may form; an infection caused by bacteria can also result. The fungus can spread to other areas of the body, including toenails.
Maintaining proper foot hygiene is crucial in preventing and managing this condition. To prevent infection, clean and dry your feet often, wear breathable shoes, and don't walk barefoot in public areas. If symptoms persist or worsen, consult our healthcare professionals for appropriate treatment.
A virus infects the skin, leading to the development of a small growth known as a wart. Warts can develop anywhere on the foot, but they typically appear on the bottom (plantar side) of the foot. Plantar warts most commonly occur in children, adolescents, and the elderly.
The symptoms of a plantar wart may include:
Thickened skin. A plantar wart often resembles a callus because of its tough, thick tissue.
Pain. Walking and standing may be painful. Squeezing the sides of the wart may also cause pain.
Tiny black dots. These often appear on the surface of the wart. Capillaries (tiny blood vessels) contain dried blood, forming the dots.
Plantar warts grow deep into the skin. Usually, this growth occurs slowly with the wart starting small and becoming larger over time.
A corn is a small circular thickened lesion in the skin of the foot. It typically arises from persistent pressure on the skin, such as friction caused by footwear. Its resemblance to a kernel of corn is the derivation of the term "corn." A corn is different from a callus in that it has a central core of hard material.
People with foot deformities, such as hammertoes, often suffer from corns because the tops of the bent toes rub against the tops of shoes.
When the skin's outer layers are injured, leading to the exposure of deeper tissues, ulcers form as open sores. Ill-fitting shoes, long periods in bed, or an injury that breaks the skin can cause them.
Patients living with diabetes, neuropathy, or vascular disease often experience ulcers. Open wounds can put patients at increased risk of developing infection in the skin and bone.
The signs and symptoms of ulcers may include drainage, odor, or red, inflamed, thickened tissue. Pain may or may not be present.
