Do You Have a Scary Foot Problem?
 

Sometimes a foot problem can sound a lot more frightening than it is. At Central Jersey Ankle & Foot Care Specialists, we want patients to know that the only truly scary foot problem is one that is left untreated. While Halloween is a time for scares, we never want our patients to be afraid to come into our Aberdeen office to have foot symptoms evaluated. Our foot and ankle surgeons, Dr. Christopher J. Mullin or Dr. Jessica A. Addeo will gently examine your feet and are always willing to answer questions about your podiatric concerns.

See if you recognize these scary sounding diagnoses below:

Tenia pedis—dry, flaky skin that’s red and itchy enough to drive you criminally insane are the primary symptoms of this disorder. It most often starts between your toes but can spread to the soles of your feet, your toenails and even to other parts of your body. It can start to look a little horrifying if not treated promptly with the skin forming blisters and oozing a milky discharge. It’s spread by direct contact and often contracted in gyms, locker rooms and health clubs. That’s why it’s more commonly known as Athlete’s Foot.

Calcaneal apophysitis—this foot disorder affects young people. In an 8-year-old you may notice your child limping or walking on tip toe. He or she may not be interested in participating in physical activities and sports they normally enjoy. Older teens and children will be able to articulate that their heel is hurting them. You may have heard this condition called Sever’s Disease. Not actually a disease, this foot problem arises when there is repetitive stress on the heel of a child whose feet bones are still developing. It can affect children up to about the age of 15 and is particularly common in those who participate in sports like basketball, track and gymnastics.

Edema—pregnant women often experience this condition as do those who are on their feet for long periods of time and people with circulation problems. It’s another name for swelling and it can be quite uncomfortable when it occurs in your feet and ankles. Fortunately, it’s easily fixed by drinking more water and putting your feet up.

If you have any of the above symptoms or other concerns about your feet, contact us today at: 732-566-2841.
