It can be common to fracture your foot and not realize it, mistaking a break for a strain or sprain.

An ingrown toenail happens when the side of the nail curves and begins to grow inwards towards the skin of your toe. Often painful and irritating, many ingrown toenails can actually be treated at home. However, severe cases, repeated cases, or those where the nail has become infected need to be taken to a podiatrist. These severe cases of ingrown toenails can often be remedied with a simple surgical procedure.
Often found on the bottom of the foot, plantar warts can be tricky to get rid of. They may clear up on their own but respond more quickly to treatment using methods such as topical solutions, cryotherapy (freezing off), surgery, and more.

A neuroma is a thickening of nerve tissue that may develop in various parts of the body. The most common neuroma in the foot is a Morton’s neuroma, which occurs between the third and fourth toes. It is sometimes referred to as an intermetatarsal neuroma. Intermetatarsal describes its location in the ball of the foot between the metatarsal bones. Neuromas may also occur in other locations in the foot.
Open wounds and sores such as ulcers can develop on the feet as a result of conditions like neuropathy, vascular disease, or diabetes. Foot wounds may lead to infection in the bones, so it is important to visit a doctor immediately. Treatment depends on the severity of the wound.
