First Signs of an Infection

Are you noticing abnormal redness, swelling, skin temperature changes, smells, drainage/pus, tissue growth, change in the color of your skin or toes, black/blue/purple/green bruising in the skin? These are all warning signs that there may be an underlying infection present. Infections can occur from simple foot injuries. Plantar warts, athlete’s foot, and fungal toenail infections are also common reasons that people develop an infection in their foot. Infections can even be found under calluses!

Check your feet DAILY! If you notice something that is changing, keep an eye on it. If it is prolonged or worsening, call us to schedule an evaluation. We are happy to help! Infections can turn into more serious problems. Seek help early!
