HARD SKIN CARE

Removal or reduction of corns & callus

Pressure reduction strategies

Hard skin forms as a protective mechanism against too much pressure. Maybe a shoe rubs outside the skin, or a bone prominence presses skin structures from inside your foot. On certain places of the foot, hard skin develops into a sharp cone-shaped hard corn. These can be really sore and may change how you walk when trying to avoid the pain, giving rise to other mobility problems. If you can sort out your toenails but still have hard or sore skin, try this package.

OTHER SKIN CARE

Although these skin infections are classed as a minor nuisance, they can easily spread. Your skin and nails are designed to protect you, but occasionally they need a little help.

Treatment of Tinea Pedis (fungal skin infection – “athlete’s foot”)

Fungi love warm, moist environments to breed, so there’s nothing nicer than the perspiration from your poor hard working feet. Different types of antifungal treatments and preventative measures are available to help.

Treatment of Verrucae (plantar warts caused by viral infection)

A Verruca is a wart on the sole of the foot. Human Papilloma Virus or HPV is responsible for some types of wart including verrucae. As we’ve all become more aware, viruses can be spread in different ways, and affect different parts of the body. HPV is passed on by skin-to-skin, or skin-to-surface contact. This could be walking poolside after a swim, or sharing a towel to dry your feet with someone who might not know they have a verruca. HPV thickens the top layer of skin. Sometimes verrucae will clear up without treatment, but may need intervention if painful, spreading or you are somewhere you could pass the virus on to others.

Treatment of fungal nails (onychomycosis)

This is usually more unsightly than painful. The nail can become discoloured or crumbly. It can take a long time to clear, as sometimes the fungus needs to grow out with the nail. Sometimes the nail can be cut back to allow an antifungal preparation to be applied more effectively

Compression hosiery or leg wraps can help reduce legs aching, and also reduce swelling in legs and feet. Compression garments can also help reduce risk of leg ulceration and reduce healing time of current leg wounds.

MEASUREMENT OF LEGS

For compression hosiery or wraps
If you usually get your compression garment(s) on prescription, your GP surgery will need these measurements, whether for standard sizing or made-to-measure garments.
Compression garments can be quite expensive, depending on your requirement, so getting something correctly sized so it’s comfy, with the right compression and a style that you will really want to wear is important.
Advice about getting them on and off is also available…!!
It is useful know if to have had a previous ‘doppler’ assessment with nurse or doctor, or if you have previously had a leg ulcer.
Measurement of Legs is included in the Total Leg Care package.

GOLD STANDARDS EVERY TIME

FIRST VISIT ONLY   There is no extra charge, but please allow me an extra 20 minutes

General health assessment:

This gives me a good baseline of how I can help you. We look at your current health status, any relevant past medical history, medications, and your foot care needs. We can also look at any (achievable) self-help goals for you to aim for after my visit if you want to.

EVERY VISIT   Included in the price of each Care Package or Treatment

Basic neurovascular assessment of feet:

Your foot pulses, lower limb temperature and sensation are checked (I promise not to tickle!) This gives me an indication of how good the circulation and touch sensation is to your feet. This is particularly important if you have diabetes or peripheral vascular disease, and can occasionally highlight other problems before they get any worse.

Basic foot and leg skin assessment:

Your skin is fascinating, and you’ll be amazed at what it can tell about you! Understanding how your skin works is a huge part of keeping your feet healthy. When you look after your skin it can protect you more efficiently from the world outside your body. Don’t panic – there’s nothing to it really, and definitely no chalkboard or powerpoint presentations involved.

Hygenic foot and ankle cleanse:

Standard procedure before any foot treatment.

Basic foot massage & moisturiser:

I do this bit for free because all legs and feet deserve a bit more love sometimes!

Ongoing advice:

There are some treatments you can do for yourself which may be beneficial. You may well have the necessary equipment to do this already, or i can point you in the right direction. 

AT THE END OF EACH VISIT YOU WILL RECEIVE

Documentation of care given, and realistic self-care guidance or recommendations.

IF REQUIRED AND WITH YOUR CONSENT

We may need to refer you to your GP or other NHS services. I will give you a copy of this information.

TO KEEP YOU SAFE

I will keep all the information you share with me confidential. 

I will only keep in contact with you if you agree, in line with GDPR.

To ensure your safe and seamless care, I may need to liaise with your Family, Carers or significant others including care workers. I will do this your permission, mutual concordance and/or Best Interests or for Safeguarding but only if required.
