    Hi ! At the end of January this year, somebody stood on my foot in a club with heels on. For a couple of weeks, my foot was painful and very bruised, however I could walk on it and move my toes so I didn't think I needed to get it checked out. Having previously breaking my ankle and leg, it was obvious to me that my foot was perfectly mobile, despite the bruising.Now ( 3 months after), I still have bruising down the side of my foot and pain if I apply pressure to it or wear tight fitting shoes. I also dance a lot and am experiencing pain in my foot after I have been dancing for a while. Is it worth( or too late )getting my foot checked now? And do you think anything even would be able to be done to it if there was a problem, due to how long it's been left? Thanks for reading!

    I have a question regarding foot blisters. I know someone who has a blister on the back of each foot. It started out as a normal blister but after 7 years the blister has become very hard and feels like bone. When the foot is upright its like a big lump sticking out of the back of the foot. Like I said its very hard, like bone. What advice is there available for such a problem? Is it something that will need operating on?

    I suffer with sesamoiditis (left foot) and so have special insoles to help alleviate the pain. However, I still get a fair bit of pain from this condition which leads me to compensate with my right foot. Now my right foot suffers with 3 neurovascular corns, clustered together at the balls of the foot. I have regular treatment every 8 weeks from a NHS Podiatrist. However, the pain from these corns (feels like broken glass), returns after just 4 to 5 days. My work involves a lot of walking but the pain and constant limping is making life so difficult and depressing, I'm beginning to wonder how much longer I'll be able to go on like this? Is treatment really the answer or is there a cure out there somewhere?

    Hi did you get any help from your post ?

    I have had an itchy foot for the past 3 years. It never stops itching but it is worse at night and in the morning. Often I will scratch it until it bleeds, and even then it continues to be itchy. I've been to the doctor who prescribed a mild steroid cream but it hasn't had any affect. At all. I'm beginning to think it could be madness. Has anyone else had anything similar? Specifically my foot is itchy on the sole, a couple of inches down from my big two (just at the end of the pad part of my foot).

    my right foot has been swollen for the last five years approx. it was x rayed and there was nothing broken. ive never had swelling of any other body parts and my left foot is normal. i stopped wearing high heeled shoes as a result and i have to buy bigger more comfortable shoes as the right foot needs more room to be comfortable.when im wearing the flat shoes the swelling doesnt appear so bad but if i was to wear high heels for a day, the swelling increases. the swelling is at the top of my foot and also there is a hard swelling at the right front of my ankle.

    I am 44 and i have deformed right foot size 2 and a size 6 left foot. I have operations on the right foot to try and straighten foot and toes but it has not worked. My right leg is very week and thinner than the left. The left leg and foot is my life saver as it keeps me upright and walking. I also have a curved spine! SHOULD I HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH CP BEFORE NOW?? For the last 2 years my left foot is hurting at the ball of my foot when standing and walking like a stabbing pain and then the foot goes numb and I can't move I became paralysed to a point trying to move the foot leg to the nearest seat. I have been to hospital and they have said I have CP I have never been told this before?? What do I do?? The said I have to get a operation now on the left leg to stretch tendon??

    Hello, I need help. I have had a foot complaint for around 7 years now and it started with intense itching around the little toe on my right foot (only affects one foot) of course the first thought is athletes foot but I do not get a build up of fungal. Over the years this has spread to all the other toes and all along the sole of my foot. My whole foot itches so bad I cannot describe it! And the skin is so dry. However it does not have the sponge effect as people have mentioned here. Also some of my nails have been effected having a yellowish colour and grow ridged and brittle. This is horrible for me and can never build up the courage to go to the doctors. I really want my foot back! Please help give me some idea of what this could be.

    This sounds exactly the same as I have - Have you had any response as to what it could be?

    I have the. Same problem I don't know how to. Make it better

    I am a 15 year old girl who has suffered from bunions most of my life. Around 15 months ago I consulted the NHS about my problem, which I later had an operation in which they sorted my feet out by removing the bunion and re-aligning my tose... However they only did one foot of the two. The foot that they opperated on has left two scars around 10cm and 4cm. After my surgery my foot was fine but I still have a lot of redness left on my foot where there is still a lump on the side of my right foot. On my left foot that I haven't had operated on I still have a bunion that wont seem to go down, it's at the same point as my left foot's was. Is there anything I can do to sort out my feet?

    i started with one veruca on the bottom of my big toe and now i have... Let me see... 5 on my big toe, 1 on the ball of my foot just under my big toe, 1 on the ball of my foot just underneath my big toe and one in the crease between the ball of my foot and my second toe. They do not cause me any pain and because they are on the underside of my foot they are not noticable. They are just very annoying and i would like to get rid of them before they spread onto the heel or onto the other foot. I have tried bazuka gel but it didnt work and made my skin peel which didnt make my foot look very attractive, is there something that does not do that and will keep my feet looking nice so i can wear sandles as summer is not far away?

    Firstly I really must know which foot it was my right foot not left :)whoops. I am sat here now two days after surgery on my Right foot, I am feeling fine with minimal pain and have got pain relief to take. I have a shoe to protect the bandaged foot and crutches to help me get around. I am under no illusion my foot is going to take a long time to heal but I can get around. Hope everyone is doing great those who had there op or are looking into having a bunion to be done.

    For any foot problems - please contact your local NHS Podiatry/Foot Health Service for free treatment and advice. In many areas you can self refer or you may need to be referred via your GP. Podiatrists train for at least 3 years in the treatment of foot conditions. This can cover anything from diabetic foot problems to heel pain, sport injuries, ingrowing toenails, verrucas, thick toenails, foot deformities, corns, Athlete's Foot, cracked heels and any other foot aches and pains. I am an NHS podiatrist!

    I have 3 verrucas on my feet,2 on my right foot and 1 on my left foot.I started off realising I had a big verruca on my right foot,I checked the other foot and found another one (it was smaller) and a few weeks later I spotted one on the side of my big toe on my right foot. I think it might have spread from one of my verrucas.My big verruca is painful when I touch it or walk on it for too long,I'm going to try duct tape and hopefully it works!

    I'm 16 and when I was 13 I remember getting a bunch of verruca's on my foot. I only got shot of them last year but everything I tried didn't work! So I had my foot frozed and it got rid of them. After that, I started getting an ithcy foot in the exact area where I had the verruca's and its extremly itchy. When I sweat, or when i've been wearing socks I feel like I need to rub my foot across the carpet to stop it itching. But after I do this, blind spots start appearing afterwards and they're really itchy and my skins all broken. The itchyness is just not bareable at all! Is this athletes foot and if so how can i get rid of it?

    The heel of my left foot was covered in verrucas, which became very sore, sometimes i even felt like my feet were on fire cause they hurt so much. Tried all the different treatments, like wartner, bazuka and even salactical solution from the doctor. Nothing, if anything they made my foot worse. After about 6 years i finally have a clear foot. I think the solution was a foot scraper. I got it from boots, scraped all the dead skin away and it eventually got to the core. Then used boots intensive foot moistoriser and socks, completely worked and i am so much happier. Its not easy but you have to persavere.

    go see a podiatrist, preferably one that offers dry needling for verruca. this is a procedure that drives the virus deeper into the skin so that your own immune system can deal with it. only one need be treated and, hopefully, all your verrucae and warts will go within 6 - 8 weeks.

    I had two on my foot. I had tried creams freezing , going to the doctor and the podiatrist and over the three years I was being treated they just got bigger and the skin became more damaged with each treatment. Then I was referred to The Royal London Homoeopathic Hospital where I was treated by a Dr Khan. Immediately they started to get better and now 3 months on they are totally gone and the skin around where they were shows little sign of scaring. The ointment I have been given is also dealing with the hard skin on my feet.

    I have 2 verrucas/ corn on my foot (the palm of my foot and on the side of my big toe) I'm in pure pain everyday and have been for 5months now I've been to the doctors several times and they have done nothing to help me, and too top everything else off i have Athletes foot. could someone please help me ???
