Treatment for Skin Conditions of the Feet

At Proactive Podiatry, we understand that skin conditions affecting the feet and ankles can be uncomfortable and unsightly. Dr. Hinduja specializes in identifying and treating a variety of podiatric skin conditions. 

Here are some of the conditions and treatments we provide:

  • Warts: A common viral infection that can affect any part of the foot. Treatment options may include topical medications or in-office foot wart removal procedures such as cryotherapy or laser treatment.
  • Dermatitis: A skin condition that causes redness, itching, and inflammation. Treatment options may include topical medications, allergy testing, and avoiding triggers that aggravate symptoms.
  • Fungal nails: A fungal infection that can cause thickened, discolored nails. Fungal nails treatment options may include oral or topical antifungal medications, laser treatment for nail fungus removal, or surgical removal of the nail.
  • Athlete's foot: A common fungal infection that causes itching, burning, and scaling skin on the feet. Athlete’s foot treatment options may include topical or oral antifungal medications, keeping feet dry, and avoiding tight-fitting shoes or unhygienic areas like public showers or swimming pools.
  • Psoriasis: A chronic autoimmune disorder that can cause thick, scaly patches of skin on the feet and other parts of the body. Treatment options may include topical medications, light therapy, or systemic medications in severe cases.

At Proactive Podiatry, our goal is to help patients maintain healthy, comfortable feet by diagnosing and treating skin conditions promptly and effectively. We believe in a proactive approach to treatment, emphasizing prevention and early intervention to prevent future complications.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you prescribe medication for nail fungus?

Yes, as a practicing podiatrist, Dr. Hinduja has the authority to prescribe medications for nail fungus. Fungal infections of the toenails can be particularly stubborn and difficult to treat, often requiring oral or topical antifungal medications to effectively eliminate the infection.

It's important to note that not all cases of nail fungus will require medication, and treatment options should be tailored to each individual patient based on the severity of their condition and any underlying health conditions that may be contributing to the infection. Before prescribing any medication, Dr. Hinduja will perform a thorough evaluation to diagnose and evaluate the underlying cause of the nail fungus.

How can I prevent skin conditions on my feet?

To prevent certain foot skin conditions, such as fungus and athlete’s foot, practice good hygiene by washing your feet regularly, keeping them dry, and avoiding walking barefoot in public areas. Wear shoes that fit properly and allow your feet to breathe, and avoid sharing footwear or towels with others.

Do you accept insurance for fungal nails treatment?

Yes! Dr. Hinduja proudly accepts insurance from a range of plans, including Highmark BCBS and UPMC. We do recommend reaching out to your insurer to confirm coverage.
