Skin and Nail Conditions

Welcome to our comprehensive guide on the most prevalent skin and nail conditions seen in podiatry. At Podiatry Hub, we specialize in diagnosing and treating a wide range of foot-related issues, including corns, ingrown nails, warts and callouses. Below, we'll provide insights into each of these conditions and how our expert podiatrists can help you regain comfort and confidence in your feet.

corns feet


A corn is a localised thickening of the skin that often appears on the top or sides of our feet or toes. They are typically caused by pressure either from the ground, ill-fitting shoes, or even other toes. Corns can be painful, making walking uncomfortable. Our podiatrists can safely and painlessly remove corns, offer advice on footwear, and provide strategies to prevent their recurrence.

Ingrown Nails

Ingrown toenails occur when the edge of a toenail grows into the surrounding skin. This condition can lead to pain, bleeding, and even infection if left untreated. Our skilled podiatrists are experts at relieving discomfort by safely and effectively treating ingrown nails. We provide both immediate relief and guidance on preventing future occurrences.

Warts on the feet, known as plantar warts, can be particularly stubborn and painful. These growths are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and can often resist over-the-counter treatments. Our podiatrists can employ various methods to eliminate warts and prevent their return.


Callouses are thickened areas of skin that develop in response to pressure or friction. While they are your body's natural defence mechanism, they can become painful if they grow too thick or if underlying issues are left unaddressed. Our podiatrists can safely reduce calluses and provide guidance on how to prevent them from returning.
