Geriatric Foot Care

As seniors, maintaining responsible foot care is crucial to sustaining a healthy and active lifestyle. To ensure foot health, it’s essential to:
  • Practice proper hygiene
  • Keep your feet clean and dry
  • Inspect your feet daily
  • Trim toenails straight across to prevent ingrown toenails
  • Wear suitable footwear for proper foot support

Growing older should not be synonymous with enduring foot pain. Many foot problems can be successfully treated with the expert care available at Pinkal Medical and Aesthetic Clinic.

Treatment for Ingrown Toenails

Ingrown toenails can result from abnormally curved, damaged, fungal, or thickened toenails that grow into the adjacent skin. Improper shoe wear can also contribute to ingrown or painful nails.

These issues can often be conservatively treated by a Foot Nurse in our clinic, involving the gentle removal of the offending nail spicule. Patients are also educated on appropriate shoe wear and nail cutting techniques to prevent future problems.

Treatment for Nail Fungus

Fungal nail infections (tinea unguium) are common, especially in the toenails of the elderly and diabetic patients. These infections lead to thickened and unsightly nails, which can become painful.

Our approach involves debriding the fungal-infected toenail as extensively as possible and providing a prescription for a topical anti-fungal medication. Treating nail fungus may take several months, depending on the severity.

Treatment for Warts

Warts are viral skin infections commonly found on the feet. While warts are most prevalent in children, they can affect individuals of any age, particularly those with more delicate skin prone to damage. Some warts may resolve on their own, but without treatment, they can grow in size and depth, multiply, and spread. They may also become painful if left untreated. The longer warts persist without treatment, the more challenging they can be to remove.

Plantar warts, often found on the soles of the feet, are usually small, hard bumps with black dots. Warts on the feet can also appear as hard, raised lumps with rough surfaces anywhere on the body. It is essential to have warts properly diagnosed by a medical professional, as they can be mistaken for corns. Key differences between warts and corns include:

  • Warts are painful when squeezed, while corns hurt when direct pressure is applied
  • Warts often feature small black dots at their center
  • Warts can develop anywhere on the foot, whereas corns are limited to high-pressure areas
  • Warts can remain dormant but infectious in the body, typically requiring a break in the skin for transmission. Common sources of transmission include public areas like swimming pools, locker rooms, and bathrooms. Scratching warts or direct contact with infected individuals can also lead to transmission.

At Pinkal Foot Care and NP Clinic, our nurses offer various treatment options for wart removal, many of which are painless. These options may include natural therapies, cryotherapy (freezing), and chemical or acid-based treatments. A consultation with a nurse will help determine whether treatment is necessary and the most suitable approach for you.

Diabetic Foot Care

Individuals with long-standing or poorly controlled diabetes are at risk for nerve damage in their feet, a condition known as peripheral neuropathy. Nerve damage can lead to altered sensation in the feet, making it difficult to feel them normally or to sense their position while walking or balancing. This can pose further risks to the feet.

Diabetes poses a significant threat to foot health, but proactive measures can mitigate risks. Following proper prevention techniques advised by your foot nurse is crucial. Prevention is the key to safeguarding your feet and avoiding pain or severe complications like amputations.

Treatment for Calluses

Our feet bear the weight of our bodies and endure various pressures and constraints, especially within footwear. Sometimes, uneven pressure distribution can lead to increased friction in specific areas, prompting the body to form thickened patches of skin known as calluses.

These calluses serve as a natural defense mechanism to protect underlying tissues. However, if the underlying pressure remains unaddressed, calluses can become painful.

At Pinkal Medical & Aesthetics Clinic, we offer effective treatments to remove your calluses and ease the ongoing pain caused by them.

Treatment for Foot Corns

What is a Callus and Corn?

If the pressure becomes concentrated in a small area, a ‘hard’ corn may develop. Sometimes the pressure of the corn or callus may produce inflammation which can result in acute pain, swelling and redness.

Sometimes ‘soft’ corns may form between the toes where the skin is moist from sweat or inadequate drying. These appear white and rubbery and are also caused by excessive friction. Corns and calluses are most often found on the balls of the feet or the tops of toes. They can also be found on heels and even along the sides of toenails.

What causes calluses and corns?

Calluses and corns are generally symptoms of underlying problems and in some cases, early warning signals of more complex foot disorders. Because they are caused by continuous pressure in one particular area, they may indicate abnormalities or deformity in bone structure or in the way a person walks. Often calluses and corns are caused by ill-fitting or inappropriate footwear.

Who gets calluses and corns?

Almost everyone!

In fact, calluses and corns affect more people than any other kind of foot problem. Some people have a natural tendency to develop calluses because of their skin type. For instance, elderly people have less fatty tissue and elasticity in their feet and because of a lack of padding, calluses may form on the bottom of the foot.

Also, people who work in occupations that require them to spend a lot of time on their feet are prone to developing calluses.

How to treat calluses and corns

The most important rule is to never attempt self-treatment without consulting a professional. Since calluses often result from underlying problems, it’s crucial to have a nurse examine your feet to identify the root cause. Over-the-counter remedies, such as corn paint or plasters, typically only address the symptoms and may harm healthy surrounding skin if used incorrectly. Always follow professional advice when using commercial preparations.


Never attempt to cut corns or calluses yourself, as the warm, moist conditions inside closed shoes can lead to infections, and small cuts can rapidly escalate into severe wounds.

When you see your Foot nurse, they will not only recommend methods to alleviate pain and remove the corn or callus but also help identify the cause and prevent future occurrences. Treatment may involve gently removing some of the hard skin of the callus to access the core of the corn, redistributing pressure on the foot with soft padding and strapping, or providing deflective appliances that fit comfortably inside your shoes. Specialized shoe inserts (orthoses) might be prescribed to reduce excessive weight-bearing forces on the foot and offer long-term relief.

Preventing Corns and Calluses and Caring for Your Feet

The best way to prevent calluses and corns is to be attentive to your feet when you sense heightened pressure in specific areas. Wearing properly fitting shoes is essential, particularly if you spend extended periods on your feet. It’s crucial never to wear someone else’s shoes.

Applying moisturizer daily can help keep your skin supple but remember that these problems primarily result from excessive pressure. If you suspect or already have a callus or corn, it’s advisable to seek professional advice and treatment from your local podiatrist.
