FOOT FUNGUS: YELLOW TOENAILS AND DRY, FLAKY SKIN – BIOPED FOOTCARE
People often talk about having “nail fungus” or “athlete’s foot” but recent medical literature by Dr. Warren Joseph (Foot Infection Disease Specialist in the USA) suggests that basically you can’t have one without the other. This means that if a foot fungus has infected your toenails, it’s obviously also living on the skin of your feet – whether you have symptoms or not!
WHAT ARE HAMMERTOES? – BIOPED FOOTCARE
A Hammertoe is a deformity that causes your toe to curl downward instead of pointing forward. It can affect any toe, but most often affects the second or third toe on your foot. While a hammertoe can be hereditary, it usually develops over time due to arthritis or wearing shoes that don’t fit properly. The good news is, in most cases, a hammertoe is typically treatable.
