Here are some of the questions we are asked often.
Are fungus infections and warts contagious?
Skin conditions are often contagious between parts of your own body and family members. Be careful to wear shower shoes in wet areas and dry your feet well especially between the toes. Wash your hands after you touch your feet.
Are all yellow thick nails from a fungus?
Often, yellow thick nails are not caused by fungus to the nail, but by consistent trauma to the toenail, such as the big toe hitting the top of a shoe. A podiatrist can correctly diagnose the condition, the nail is sometimes cultured to determine if an organism is causing the deformed and discolored nail.
Why do I keep getting corns and calluses?
Corns and calluses are symptoms. Dr. Baldinger will treat the underlying cause and good home care can minimize your visits to the doctor.
I am embarrassed when I have to take off my shoes can smelly, sweaty feet be helped?
Many treatment are available topically to help with this condition. You don’t have to be embarrassed after you see Dr. Baldinger.
