Should I Call the Podiatrist?
 
Aberdeen Podiatrist | Aberdeen Should I Call the Podiatrist? | NJ | Central Jersey Ankle & Foot Care Specialists |

This is a question that we at Central Jersey Ankle & Foot Care Specialists hear often that patients struggle with—usually after they’ve waited too long to contact us about a serious foot health issue. It’s always better to err on the side of caution and call our Aberdeen office if you are in pain or have noticed something unusual about your toes, ankles or feet. Our podiatrists Dr. Christopher J. Mullin, Dr. Jessica A. Addeo and Dr. Rajan Patel, would much rather you come in and be checked for a condition that turns out to be minor rather than wait until a foot problem progresses to an emergency situation.  

Here are some signs that you should call the foot doctor:

  • You are experiencing pain in your toes, feet or ankles—this includes pain that comes on suddenly, is worsening, chronic, continual.
  • Changes in the appearance of your foot: swelling, color changes, shape.
  • Abnormal growths, lumps or bumps on your feet, whether or not they are painful.
  • Extremely dry skin, especially if it is accompanied by itching, burning, redness or cracking.
  • Changes in your nails: color, thickness, brittleness, peeling or crumbling.
  • Any signs of infection, including redness or red streaks, heat when you touch the affected area, redness, pus or discharge, fever.

 

Diabetic Patients

If you have diabetes, you need to be especially sensitive to changes in your feet. Since infection and sores or ulcers are a serious medical threat to diabetic patients, you should be hyper-vigilant and call the doctor for even seemingly minor conditions such as blisters, ingrown toenails and scrapes. Do not try to treat these conditions on your own. Allow the foot doctor to care for these problems to prevent harmful results.

If you are still uncertain whether or not your symptoms merit a trip to our office, call us at: 732-566-2841. Our helpful staff will be able to direct you.
