On your feet Q A What causes bunions? and is there any Way to correct them? | common complaints| BUNIONS, BLISTERS aNd CRaCKEd HEELS aRE JUST SOME OF THE CONdITIONS THaT PLaGUE yOU aT SOME POINT IN yOUR LIFE. WE LOOK aT WayS TO PREvENT aNd TREaT THEM Q A Fiona Page, 41, East Grinstead my feet are sWeating more than usual. What can i do to stop this? Lee Gray, 29, Enfield Bunions are a structural deformity of the great or big toe joint, in which the bones move gradually into a position of malalignment. ‘the condition often runs in families,’ says michael o’neill, consultant podiatric surgeon at advanced Footcare Group in surrey. ‘and may be caused by a certain shape of foot. sometimes, people with very mobile joints have feet that roll in – pronation. this causes abnormal pressure to the big toe joint resulting in the deformity. smaller bunions can also occur on the small toe side of the foot. if you think you might have a bunion, then see a podiatrist so it can be treated before you need surgery. He or she may advise changing your shoes or wearing special insoles called orthotics. if bunions do develop and become painful, then a podiatric surgeon, specially trained in foot surgery, will be able to realign the toe. this is done under local anaesthetic and with only a half-day stay in hospital.’ scientists have estimated that we have 250,000 sweat glands on the soles of our feet, so they do sweat more than other areas. in some people, though, excessive sweating can become a real problem. the condition, technically known as hyperhidrosis, is often passed down through families and can also affect the palms of the hands. treatment involves washing feet daily with an anti-bacterial soap and using an enhanced antiperspirant to control the sweating. Work is being done with Botox, but it may require up to 36 injections to stop the sweating! can a podiatrist do anything to help my ingroWn toenail? you’re on your feet every day, make sure you look after them Q A Sharon Harris, 34, Wolverhampton months, doing stretching exercises and wearing orthotics (as explained in the first question). Sometimes a special night splint has to be worn, to stretch the foot. if the condition persists a steroid injection will help.’ Q A WoRds: Carly Rigley | PhotogRAPh: Getty Images i have heel pain. What can i do to ease it? Tom Nash, 46, London Q A Heel pain affects many people, and for some, the pain persists and becomes a daily part of their lives. ‘the condition, technically known as plantar fasciitis, causes difficulty putting pressure on the heel especially when first getting out of bed in the morning,’ says michael. ‘it is caused by some inflammation of the tissue that runs from the bottom of the heel to the ball of the foot. the condition is often caused by long periods of standing, injury, wearing bad shoes, having an abnormal foot structure or being obese. common remedies include wearing trainers for three i have Wide feet and find that regular shoes are too uncomfortable. can you suggest a solution? Alison Sharpe, 35, Loughborough Wide feet are very common and, thankfully, this is now being reflected on the high street and in online stores. squeezing into shoes that don’t fit you properly should now be a thing of the past, because many retailers sell shoes and boots in wide fittings. To find the perfect fit for you, check out www.brantano.co.uk, which has a wide range of trendy and practical shoes for all the family – including a good selection of wide fits in fashionable styles. or log on to www. simplybe.co.uk my trek for Comic Relief my feet were in a terrible mess but they soon recovered. Now I make sure that once a week I attack them to get rid of dry skin and I slather on lots of moisturiser.’ Lorraine says... ‘After treating an ingrown toenail is, in fact, relatively straightforward. if a small piece of nail is badly cut, the podiatrist can easily remove this section. While this is usually a fairly painless procedure, if necessary, a local anaesthetic can be used. if an ingrown toenail should become a recurring problem, then a small operation called a nail wedge resection, can be performed. this involves chemically destroying a section of nail and nail bed. after Wearing high heels on a night out, the balls of my feet really ache. What can i do to help? Q A Leanne Reed, 25, Sunderland if you know you’ll be out for a long time, and you really can’t bear to ditch the heels in favour of more sensible flats – it’s a good idea to ensure that your shoes have some cushioning for the balls of your feet. the scholl party Feet range are great – check out www.scholl.com n www.athomemagazine.co.uk MAY 2012 | 125 http://www.brantano.co.uk http://www.simplybe.co.uk http://www.simplybe.co.uk http://www.scholl.com http://www.athomemagazine.co.uk
