Flip Flop Time

With the beautiful weather out there, we here at Austin Foot and Ankle Specialist want to make sure you are taking full advantage. The warm weather is a great time to break out your sandals, flip flops or open toed shoes. Don't let any unsightly corns, warts or cracks stop you from showing off your feet! There are a number of ‘over the counter' products you can use to get rid of warts or moisturize your feet, but often these treatments are slow and time consuming. As a healthcare provider, Dr. Thomajan has a number of different treatments at his disposal that can often resolve these issues at a much faster rate.

Fungal toe nails are another problem that may be keeping you out of your summer shoes. The thickened, discolored nail is caused by a fungal infection to the area. While initially not painful, this condition can become more problematic with time. Fungal nails can often be associated with athlete's foot and this infection can easily spread to other toe nails. After an initial assessment to eliminate any more serious problems, Dr. Thomajan will discuss a number of treatment options with you. There are a number of prescriptions that are quite effective especially when used in combination with other podiatric care such as laser treatment or debridement.

Don't be embarrassed by the maladies that may be affecting your feet. After a proper evaluation by Dr. Thomajan and an appropriate treatment, you can get full use out of your summer footwear. Make an appointment today and until next time stay healthy Austin!
