Here are 9 common foot problems that you should be aware about:

Corn or Callus
This is the most common foot ailment. Corns are thick skin that is formed due to improper pressure on various points on the feet. Calluses are similar in nature, with the only difference being that they spread over a larger area and are caused by something rubbing against the skin of the feet.

Corn and calluses usually disappear when you stop what is causing the wrong pressure to your feet such as the wrong shoes or a bone spur.

Some of the ways to get rid of corns is to use a gel for the purpose of removing the corn or callus, patches or any other medication.



Severe calluses and corns might need trimming by the doctor or a minor surgery.

This usually happens when the muscles around the toe get out of balance. It might not seem like a big deal initially, but the condition can get extremely painful.



For some people this condition is hereditary, while for others it might be due to a foot injury or wrongly fitted shoes.

Fungal Nail Infection
Like fungal infections can attack the skin, fungus can also affect the nails. Fungus will get into the cracks of the nail and cause it to become thick, discolored and brittle.

This infection is hard to treat. It can easily spread and this fungus is usually found in damp or wet places.

Lucky ones can get the problem resolved using anti-fungal powders, creams or lotions.

The more practical and effective treatment involved pulling off the nail by surgery so that the fungus clears up fully.


Ingrown Toe Nail
As the problem states, it is a nail that has grown inside the skin. This ingrown nail causes inflammation, swelling and a lot of pain. The sooner you get the nail out of the skin, the better.

Ingrown toe nails usually sprout due to cutting nails too short so that they get into the skin or you fit your feet into too small shoes.

You can try pulling out the nail using a piece of cotton or a pair of tweezers.


Flatfoot
Flatfoot is a condition when even the arch of the feet touches the floor. This condition is usually caused by arthritis but in today’s day and age there are several factors that cause it.

Being overweight and wearing tight fitting shoes will only add to the pain of this condition.

In this condition, it is important to do arch strengthening exercises.


Plantar Warts
This is an infection where virus enters your feet through broken skin under your feet and forms tough skin growth. They are contagious and spread by skin to skin contact or by touching public places which encourage the growth of this infection.

They are harmless and usually can be left alone, provided they don’t cause too much pain.

Washing with salicylic acid helps in getting rid of them. For more severe cases, you can try laser, freezing and burning therapy to get rid of them.

There is nothing wrong in becoming aware of what ailments you can suffer in your feet. It’s always good to be aware so that you know what is happening to your body.
