Our Westminster, CA Podiatrists specializes in treating a wide variety of skin conditions including:
WARTS (PLANTAR WARTS)
STATE OF THE ART LASER THERAPY FOR WARTS & SKIN LESIONS
At Brookhurst Foot & Ankle Center, we offer many wart removal treatment options. Foot Warts (Plantar Warts) are a common foot condition that we treat in our practice. If you have one or more growths on the bottom of your foot that may or may not be painful, chances are it's a plantar wart.
Plantar Warts are caused by a virus. You may notice little black dots in the wart. People sometimes think these dots are splinters. They are actually the blood vessels that nourish the wart. You can get viral warts anywhere you walk barefoot, such as the local pool, karate studio, dance studio, locker room or even from a pedicure salon.
There are several treatments for plantar warts, the type of treatment received depends upon the patient's needs. At Brookhurst Foot & Ankle Center our Podiatrist uses laser therapy for foot warts which is the easy and convenient treatment that may help you.
Plantar warts can spread easily. If you think you have one or more plantar warts, schedule an appointment immediately to have them removed before they multiply
ATHLETE'S FOOT (TINEA PEDIS)
WHAT IS ATHLETE'S FOOT (TINEA PEDIS)?
Athlete's foot is caused by a fungal infection affecting the web of skin between the toes and the soles of the foot. Symptoms typically include burning, pain, itching and scaling.
Athlete's foot is highly contagious. People pick up these fungal infections when walking barefoot on contaminated floors and object. Athlete's Foot can even be passed from person to person.
Although Athlete's foot can be treated with anti-fungal medications, you should always try to keep your feet dry, wear cotton socks and "breathable shoes".
FOOT SKIN CANCER
THINK IT'S SKIN CANCER?
Have you noticed a growth or a discoloration on your foot or ankle? Has this growth changed shape or color recently?
In either case you should come in for an evaluation to let us determine if these conditions warrant treatment. Foot or ankle Melanoma (cancer (malignant tumor)) are often missed or diagnosed too late. We see these conditions every day in our practice and we are equipped to diagnose and treat these conditions quickly and effectively.
Don't put yourself at risk by ignoring these signs. Contact us for a consultation with our Podiatrist at Brookhurst Foot & Ankle Center, so that we can safeguard you against the cancers and complications that could develop.
