    THAT HAPPENS 2 ME I HAD EM I STILL DO JUST GIVE THEM TIME THEY WILL GOO AWAY BE PACTION

    Hello, Firstly, I have hyper-mobility and flat feet, my skeleton is also flexible/hyper mobile. I have had a problem with my right foot for approx. 4-years with a bulging lump. I was diagnosed after a biopsy in 2010 as having PVNS which is very aggressive non-melignant tumour. The biopsy has left me with nerve damage in my right foot. Since the operation mid-2010 more PVNS growth has wrapt around my right-ankle - causing me further discomfort, pain and disability. Approx 2-weeks ago I was given nuclear injections called Yattrium injections in my right foot but prior to the injections I have felt itchy and irritablility above my ankle at the bottom of my right-leg. Are the tumours growing up my leg? MRI scans prior to the biopsy showed that I have PVNS tumours and bone errotion below my right-ankle bone. Is this due to have long-term tumours I think they have been growing for years prior to detection? Will my foot fully recover due to nerve damage and bone errotion or will it get worse? Example; could the bone errotion develope onto something else? I have looked on the web and Pigmented Viono Nodular Synovitis is common in the knee and re-growth is a hight percentage - what's the percentage for feet? Also, PVNS in the foot is it more concerning due to more nerves etc being in the foot? Also, my knee on the opposite leg (left) has been causing me problems now due to my right leg not being able to fully support my frame. Overall, I am trying to get myself mobile again as I am a police officer is it likely that I will be able to fulfill my role as a PC again following my foot problems?

    I have incredably smelly feet, the smell is like rotten cheese or dog poo. my socks get very sweaty and wet even after a hour, after taking them off they become very stiff. My feet constantly smell and sweat whatever I put on my feet. Noteven washing them stops the smell. The soles of my feet sometimes look as if the skin is rotting away and are white in colour. I have been to the doctors and also asked the chemists who have given me various treatments which have not worked.

    These doctors you go to are they just GP's?????.. As this sounds like you should be seeing a specialists of some sort...and pending what type of pain it is, muscline, joints, tight skin,???? will give you the direction of what specialist is needed to be consulted..?? Redness? blood circulation?? You seem to have the discoloration in hands and feet, but pain only in feet?? You are only 26, and cannot be the only one with this condition.. Pursue it further, either change your GP or if not done prior be consulting specialists. When you rest your feet, do try placing them in warm water with salt, this may take the throbbing, heaviness, pain away, similar to tight skin and bunion complaints.???. and also maybe look at a something like Nurophen plus for pain releif also???.. Speak to Pharmacist and GP for releif methods/medication then a specialist to find the cause.

    I always seem to suffer with having extremely cold feet, more so than my hands. My sister was diagnosed with Raynaud's syndrome (mainly in her feet) and was wondering if this could possibly be the case with me too. I don't have problems with discoloring in my feet - unlike my sister but is it common to run in the family? My other sister also has problems with cold feet too. Please could anyone give any advice or help with this?

    Can you help me please? I have really horrible feet. My toes are very long, my 2nd toe is bigger than the first and my 3rd is even bigger than the 2nd. I'm a 25 year old woman and never ever show my feet in public. I find that my feet pain when wearing shoes as my toes do not form the right shape for them. It's horrendous in summer as it is so hot and I have to wear shoes that cover my feet completely. Is there anything that can be done? Can this be corrected so my toes are the normal size?

    i have the same thing pitted stinking slimey white feet, and even when they have been washed scrubbed and pummaced the still smell. Looking on the tinternet i think it might be pitted keratolysis here ia a link for the site i found http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1053078-overview#a0101

    Hello Phil, I am working on a brand new health show called Diagnosis Live from the Clinic on Channel 4 and we are looking for people to test out the top five products for athlete's foot. You do not need to be filmed, all you need to do is contact me , I can fill out an application form with you on the phone (2mins) and then our pharmacist will contact you and send out one of the products for you to try for free - all we need is your feedback. If you are interested, please get in touch with me. You will find the number on the Diagnosis Live from the Clinic Channel 4 website. Best Wishes, Lewis.

    Sounds like a fungal infection I had many years ago which my doctor prescribed a cream for. Go to your doctor and have him:her check your feet and take a swab for identification of the infection.

    Hi there I suffer from the same problem pitted keratolysis is what it is its a bacterial problem, its a nightmare and very frustrating., about 5 years ago i had a bad case of it about 60% of both feet were covered in it. It was very smelly almost like amonia, wet socks etc. I found a product on the internet which unfortunatley has been discontinued now cms foot spray i used this 3-4 times a day and after a few months of using it it cleared up, but unfortunaley it has returned, and i cannot get rid of it i have tried all sorts, the most recent was a topical antibiotic from the docs 8 week course it didn't work even some web sites say they have seen some changes when used for this codition. They also recommend products with aluminium chloride in. I would appreciate any feed back from anyone who has had success in clearing it up

    I am 15 and I have these tiny white lumps underneath my skin that are all over the side of my feet. But they only appear when I put weight on my feet and then they feel hard. But when I don't put any weight on my feet they can not be seen or felt. They do not hurt or cause me discomfort but I am curious as to what they are because I can't find these symptoms anywhere.

    My left toenail on my big toe is yellow and I don't know what to do. It's becoming thin and it's making me self consious about showing my feet. Also both of my feet have bunions and I don't know how to get rid of them, and both toenails are growing outward instead of straight. I hate showing my feet now and it's reducing my self esteem. What can I do about these problems?

    For years I have corns on both middle toes. I've tried everything that is available from the chemist and nothing has worked. Now they are hideous to the point that I cannot wear sandles/flip flops, or go bare feet on the beach. I've even stopped going swimming in case anyone sees my feet. it's quite depressing that during the summer months my feet are always covered up and end up sweating alot and even at home my feet are always covered up. I have to use corn pads constantly and my toes hurt after a while when I'm wearing shoes. Can anyone give me advice about how to remove them permanently :(

    i was diagnosed with hyperhydrosis years ago i mainly sweat from my hands, back, legs and feet but very little under the arms, i have tried dricolor but it took the skin off my hands and my feet are rarely dry so much so that i rot shoes, i now mostly wear trainers and cotton socks which helps. i would like to know if the treatment for feet the electric plate would help my feet. my doctors never bothered about my condition until i demanded to see a specialist about 9 years ago who said he could do nothing for me as i could sweat more from another part of my body if he operated on my hands, i would like to get my feet fixed as i now have diabetes and am afraid of having any problems with my feet

What can I do to stop my feet getting wider, I am very self concious about them as I am a size 8. On the outside of my feet are small bumps just in the middle, other then that they are straight. Please help.

    I am 16 years old and i have maligned big toes that i was born with, they turn inwards and my feet as a whole appear to do this as well, it is also apparent on my left and right index fingers. It is my feet however that cause the problem, i get very painful pressure points on my feet, sometimes achey knees and back problems which i feel are related. This has been an issue as my job involves being on my feet a lot. I would love to have this resolved.

    I've suffered from excessive sweating on the palms of my hands and the balls of my feet for as long as I can remember. This usually begins when I don't have sox on my feet, which is very odd, but a few years back I went to see a specialist and they suggested I try Driclor. This is very effective, but having to roll this only my feet and hands every night is often a pain and I wish there was a pill I could take to get rid of it. I considered the injections, but having them in my feet really turns my stomach to think about

    I would like to nominate my other half The skin on his soles of his feet do not seem to have waterproofing, so any time they get wet the skin become shrivelled and then you can literally peal chunks off - a bit like trench foot. He has it on his hands as well but the feet are worse. On a day to day basis, because his feet sweat and then get this trench foot we get very very smelly feet, but also this white patch on his feet that never really goes away, it is literally rotting. It is not very pleasant. I am wondering whether there is something more going on. What the cause of this strange condition is and whether we can improve it
