Some of us have developed a healthy practice of using an SPF lotion to protect against skin damage from the sun. We may even be in the fairly regular habit of checking our skin for moles or other conditions, but, please don’t forget the feet. The skin on feet and ankles should be as carefully monitored as any other area.
Warts, moles, and blisters are common foot ailments, but if ever you’re not sure, or are concerned, contact a podiatrist. A foot doctor can properly diagnose and provide treatment options, so make an appointment today. Annual podiatry check-ups go a long way to preventing foot and ankle ailments.
Skin conditions, including skin cancer of the foot, are varying in type and appearance. Some foot skin conditions can mask skin cancer. It’s necessary to be examined and accurately diagnosed by a specialist like the skilled podiatrists at Desert Podiatric Medical Specialists.
If you have any skin conditions on your feet or ankles, have them checked out by your foot doctor for proper treatment and to rule out more serious issues.
