Do You Need a Podiatrist?

Find Out Here!

If you have an open sore on your foot or ankle, you need to see a podiatrist. This is especially important if you have diabetes because it usually takes you longer to heal.

You have a better chance of healing if you are seen by your podiatrist right away and treatment is started. If you have had an open sore for a long time, your chance of getting a skin or bone infection (osteomyelitis) increases.

Foot Discolorations
For the most part, both of your feet should look alike. If one foot is a lot different color than the other, there may be a problem. Redness may be an indication of an infection or gout. A blue or purple color may indicate a vein problem. Whiteness or paleness (pallor) may be a sign of decreased blood flow. If you have these color changes, you need to see a podiatrist.

Pain and Swelling in One Foot
If you have pain and swelling (edema) in one foot and not the other, this is not normal. You should see a podiatrist. There are many problems that could be causing the pain and swelling such as a broken bone, tendonitis, tendon rupture or infection. It is more common to have swelling in both feet and ankles and this could be due to lymphedema.
