FOOT CARE FOR DIABETICS
When you are a diabetic one of the most important things is to look after are your feet. This is because your feet can be affected by your life style hobbies and footwear which could lead to sore, painful feet if you are not having regular advice and treatment. Minor foot aliments can lead to infection and if left untreated it could cause major problems and affect your digits & lower limbs.
Regular appointments are strongly recommended every 6 weeks as well as attending your diabetic clinic with the community nurse.

INGROWN TOE NAILS
An ingrown toenail develops when the sides of the toenail grow into the surrounding skin. The big toe is often affected, either on one or both sides. The nail curls and pierces the skin, which becomes red, swollen and tender.
An ingrown toe Nail can be the result of many things - Poor toenail trimming, walking for long lengths of time, doing an activity that you would not normally do and ill fitting shoes.
We are highly experienced in this treatment and can normally remove the nail spur within minutes.
The Lacuna method is a treatment for fungal nails, which entails the drilling of several micro-holes throughout the nail plate. This allows an antifungal solution to be transported to the area of the infection. As the nail is already 'dead', the holes remain and grow out naturally. Post treatment, we recommend review appointments every 6 weeks. The Lacuna method is not a short term treatment and like most fungal nail treatments, may require over 18 months for the nail infection to grow out.
