How Do I Know If My Foot is Infected?

Foot infections are absolutely no fun at all. Not only can they be extremely painful, but if left untreated, they can worsen and develop into more serious problems that are harder to treat. Certain types of infections can result from or be a sign of certain types of conditions, such as diabetes. Foot infections vary widely in terms of causes, complexity and severity, which is why it is important to see a professional straight away if you suspect that you have one. At Sutherland Podiatry Centre, we treat infected feet every day, and as such, we’re very familiar with the warning signs you should be looking out for. These include things such as:

  • Visible blemishes on the skin
  • Toenail discolouration
  • Your foot being warmer than usual
  • Pain/tenderness
  • Restricted motion
  • Pus/drainage from a wound
  • Swelling
  • Redness

If you’re suffering from any of these symptoms, especially if you’re a Diabetic, it is imperative that you book an appointment with your podiatrist as soon as possible so that they can treat the problem straight away before it gets any worse. If you think that you might have a foot infection, don’t delay, call us now on 9542 3491 or book an appointment online right now so that you can get the care and treatment that you need.

We have HICAPS available in our clinic, which means that our patients can claim from their private health fund straight away
