You may want to see a podiatrist/chiropodist for advice and treatment if you have painful feet, thickened or discoloured toenails, cracks or cuts in the skin, growths such as, warts or verrucas, scaling or peeling on the soles, or any other foot-related problem.
Podiatrists can also supply orthotics, which are tailor-made insoles, padding and arch supports to relieve arch or heel pain.
The orthotic is put into your shoe to realign your foot, take pressure off vulnerable areas of your foot, or simply make your shoes more comfortable.
Even if your feet are generally in good condition, you might consider having a single session of podiatry. For example, you may want to have any hard skin on your feet removed or have your toenails clipped. You can also benefit from help with more complex foot problems, including preventing, diagnosing and treating injuries related to sports and exercise.
A podiatrist can also advise you about footwear (take your shoes with you) and check that you're looking after your feet properly.
