TREAT IT BY... Applying an antifungal product containing terbinafine, such as Lamisil Athlete’s Foot Cream. SEE A DOCTOR IF... Your skin is cracked or symptoms don’t resolve in two weeks.
TREAT IT BY... Topping the blister with antibiotic ointment, then putting on a hydrocolloid gel bandage, such as Clicks Advanced Wound Care Hydrocolloid Plasters. SEE A DOCTOR IF... The blister is itchy or red, oozes pus, doesn’t heal in a week or heals but returns.
CORN OR CALLUS
TREAT IT BY... Using a pumice stone to buff away the top layers of skin, then applying a moisturiser daily. SEE A DOCTOR IF... It recurs. Something could be wrong with the bone structure of your feet.
INGROWN TOE NAIL
TREAT IT BY... Soaking it in warm water for 10 minutes twice a day. Trim the nail straight across when it grows in. SEE A DOCTOR IF... Your toe is red or oozes pus or fluid or the nail bed is still sore after two days.
TREAT IT BY... Cutting a salicylic acid wart pad, such as Kroko Corn Caps Medicated Corn Plasters, to the wart’s size and applying it on top. SEE A DOCTOR IF... The wart is painful, doesn’t go away in two months or you have multiple warts.
