Toenails

At Glad Feet Podiatry we believe that your feet should not only be healthy but should also look great. Many people hide their feet behind closed shoes even in Summer due to the embarrassment from treatable toenail issues. The great news is that our Podiatrists could help treat these toenail issues and bring them back to presentable state leaving you confident enough to show them off:

Thickened toenails

Toenails can become thick overtime due to many factors such as genetic, trauma or a fungal infection. By combining the experience of our Podiatrists and the high tech equipment at our clinic, we can restore the the healthy appearance of your nails using a machine which can thin them out.

Ingrown toenails

Ingrown toenails are not only painful but can also be embarrassing, as they cause the surrounding skin to become red, swollen and full of pus. Our highly trained Podiatrists can perform a minor surgery at our clinic using Local anaesthetic to remove the side of the nail that grows into the skin. Once healed not only will the pain disappear but you will feel more confident showing off your toenails.

Fungal toenails

Fungal toenails are very hard to treat especially when they have been there for a long time. These infections usually begin as a skin infection called Athlete’s foot which spreads to the toenails. Fungal toenails can be prevented by practicing simple hygiene measures such as drying well in between the toes, treating any fungal infection in the skin immediately and protecting yourself in communal areas by wearing protective footwear. If you have a fungal toenail infection and you feel embarrassed by it our Podiatrists can help treat this problem using a technology called Photodynamic Therapy.
