Ingrown toenails are easily treated in Achilles Clinic Cork. If treated early enough this can consist of a simple pain free clearing out of the side of the nail during a routine chiropody treatment.

Often to get rid of a verruca (plantar wart) on the foot can be a great source of frustration for both you and the clinician treating them. This is because a verruca is a viral infection of the skin and therefore must rely on your immune system to recognise it, and then create a response to destroy it. Treatments have varied in the past from rubbing a potato off the verruca and burying it,to the use of banana skins!
Naturally, here at Achilles Clinic Cork we use the most up to date evidence-based practice for successful verruca removal. Verruca treatment for children can differ from treatment for adults, and this is what will be discussed here.
A verruca is caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) which is responsible for many skin infections (cold sores etc). It often looks like a lump under the skin that protrudes out and may have tiny black dots present. Hard skin frequently builds up over the verruca, especially if it has grown in size and is on a high pressure area on your foot (e.g. the ball of your foot). Verruca can lay dormant in your skin for up to 8 months before they are visible.
Verruca are not always painful but can certainly become painful if left untreated.
Verruca removal does not have to be a painful experience and here at Achilles Clinic we aim to provide the best treatment outcomes. For children under the age of 12 we offer a treatment that uses an acid based ointment as well as physically removing the verruca at routine visits. This method of treatment is painless and has a good success rate for this age group. For adults, verruca surgery is by far the best choice of treatment.
What to do next?
If there is a possibility that you or a family member has a verruca or wart on your foot then don’t delay in getting it checked. Often verruca can be mistaken for other skin problems (corns, moles etc) and our podiatrists here at Achilles Clinic Cork will easily be able to distinguish what type of problem exists.
