There are many types of Skin Problems that are related to the foot that people suffer from, and our podiatrist is proud to offer many tips and services to help give you relief.
We see many Skin Problems here at Dr. Stuart Feldman’s practice, and we are happy to treat fungal and bacterial conditions, dry skin, corns, calluses, warts, eczema, and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). These can all be very inconvenient and sometimes painful, but we are here to help you in any way possible.
Trauma, skin disease, infection, and constant pressure all have the potential of making changes to the skin of your feet. We live in the desert and it is very dry. Using moisturizing lotion can help. However, if the condition is really severe, a prescription skin lotion is advised.
Also unique to Las Vegas is that many people work in casinos and are on their feet all day. Most insurance companies provide coverage for debriding painful corns and callouses. If these services are not covered by your insurance, Dr. Feldman will provide them at a very reasonable cost. Dr. Feldman graduated from Michigan State University’s School of Hotel Restaurant Management Program and has first-hand knowledge of the stresses placed on feet for those in the industry.
Very important to rotate your shoes, at least for 24 hours. Always wear clean cotton socks. If you have a job where you are on your feet a lot, please spend the money on a good pair of shoes.
If you have any skin problems, or pain, please call Dr. Feldman.
