How much does cryosurgery cost?

In the UK presently the lowest fees are £190 / USD$ 240 but its worth shopping around .

Alternative painless treatments to Cyrosurgery

I work with a lot of patients children and adults who suffer from warts and verruca.

And the biggest concern always ” Is the treatment going to hurt”

Thats why i believe in using natural plant based treatment as my first choice when removing warts.

Pain Free Wart Treatment

Pros

  • Pain free applications
  • No dressings required
  • Skin and tissue is not scared or damaged
  • Easy applicators
  • Cheaper than cyrosurgery
  • Can be done in the comfort of your own home

Cons

  • Not an over night result
  • Takes 4-16 weeks on average
  • Daily application can be tedious

I personally would say the pros out rule the cons, if you are serious about getting rid of your plantar wart or verruca then a daily application is not going to be hassle.

Just think of the end result …… WART FREE FEET!

I would direct you towards the H Warts Formula Which the Product my patients use and i have over 10 years experience and success with the Oil.

What happens when you freeze a wart ?

Apart from a black blister and a lot of pain!

what happens when you freeze a wart on your foot

 Is Cryosurgery painful?

Hell yes!

Ok maybe i should be more sensitive but i have had this done personally and it was pretty awful!

The Extreme coldness and applicator pressure takes some mind over matter power,

But if you can bare with the pain its the quickest way to get rid of a plantar wart or verruca for sure.

Home kits are no where as strong as Cryosurgery done by Podiatry clinics.

That is why the kits have 10-15 applications usually as it will take several treatments to the warts to blister.

What is Liquid Nitrogen?

A colourless clear liquid, It is nitrogen in a liquid form,  It is extremely cold and will freeze any living tissue it makes contact with.

Read more about liquid nitrogen here

Your Podiatrist Or Doctor will hold the applicator onto the wart for 10-30 seconds MAX.

Before it becomes uncomfortable and un bearable!.

 

What happens when you freeze a wart over the next few days?

The coldness of the liquid nitrogen forms a black blood blister over the wart,

This is good!

Once the Black blister hardens it will fall off with the warts root attached.

Keep your foot dry and watch out for:

  • Redness and tenderness
  • Bleeding
  • Infections
  • Pain (the skin will be super sensitive)

What happens when you freeze a wart using a home kit?

what happens when you freeze a wart at home

This is Dr Scholls Freeze Away Kit but to be honest they are much alike with Wartner and Compund W.

You Get a can of liquid nitrogen and 10-15 applicator heads included.

Only use an applicator once.
This prevents cross contamination.what happens when you freeze a wart

 

 

 

Hold the applicator on the wart for 3-5 seconds.

Top 3 Freezing warts at home kits

  1. Dr. Scholl’s Freeze Away Wart Remover, 7 Treatments, Box
  2. Compound W Freeze Off Wart Removal System, 15 Treatments
  3. Wartner Cryogenic Original Wart Removal System, 12 Count

Do Home Freezing Kits Work?

Yes it does!
But reading through the amazon reviews on all three products i would say the product really works on children feet and warts on hands.

But for stubborn long established warts the testimonials are
all bad actually with only 48% say they got the results they wanted!

I wouldn’t cross Cryosurgery off your list yet,

I believe you would get the result you want…. that is the wart gone

If you visited a Podiatrist clinic who uses the clinical cryosurgery equipment and the highest strength liquid nitrogen that soft tissue can take.

Yes it may be painful but fingers crossed you will only need one treatment and the wart or verruca will be gone for good!

My 2016 Infographic photo here explains how my patients warts were treated best.

The winner being Natural plant based oils and the worst Bazuka Gel.!

Alternative treatments

Now my poor old mum has been plagued with autoimmune problems all her life and warts on her feet and hands have been a really problem for her!.

She had Three Cryosurgery treatments on her feet and the warts would just not die!

I remember being with her watching her in pain from the treatments and it wasn’t nice ! but she was prepared to try it to be wart free.

When i qualified as a Chiropodist in 2001 i made it my mission to find her alternative pain free treatment to try on her warts.

What we came up with after 10 or more products was the H Warts Formula.

A natural essential oil plant based treatment that was applied to the warts daily for 15 weeks and thank heavens success was ours!

It is a product i have now been recommending to my patients for over 10 years with my biggest success (apart from mum) being a child who had 10 warts and we got rid of them in 16 days!.

What is a soft corn between toes

Question of the day #askthefootpainexpert …Facebook

soft corn picture

What is a soft corn between toes?


A Corn is a build up of skin caused by friction or pressure mostly from shoes.

A hard corn and soft corn between toes normally appears when you wear too tight shoes or boots,

Your feet are pushed and squashed together causing the toes to rub each other as you walk.

Its the action of movement and confined space in the shoes that cause corns to form.

Soft corn in between toes are SOFT because your toes are tight against each other,

The skin sweats and air ventilation between the toes is limited, this then causes the skin to become clammy and wet.

Soft corn photos

soft corn between toes soft corn in between toessoft corn picture

Soft corns between the toes look very different to hard corns which look like a circular hard pin head.

The white circle around the corn is wet sweaty skin and the callous is sunken.

Its the soft white skin that makes it so hard to remove the corn with a scalpel so hardening the soft corn always helps to remove it quicker.

How to treat soft corns

As a Foot Health Practitioner i must admit is hate soft corns they are trickier to treat then hard corns which are just lumps of hard skin.

The problems you face treating soft corns

  •  Getting access to the soft corn
  •  Removing the entire corn
  •  Preventing bleeding
  •  Infections

Home Remedies for treating corns

These are the best treatments i can recommend you try at home but you may need your partner or a friend to help!

  1. Compeed Gel Corn Plasters
  2. Animal Wool
  3. Gel Separators
  4. Corn Wraps
  5. Surgical spirit


Do you notice on my list i have not listed ACID CORN PLASTERS! which is what most people use when trying to remove corns.

This is because they cause more damage then good to the skin.

The plaster which contains salicylic acid is applied to the toe,

10 minutes later your feet begin to get warm and the plaster moves and you feel discomfort and burning.

This is because the corn plaster has moved and is now burning your healthy soft skin.

 

 

What does toenail fungus look like?

Question of the day #askthefootpainreliefexpert 

what does toenail fungus look like

What does toenail fungus look like?

One of the most common questions i get asked as a Foot Health Practitioner is what does toenail fungus look like and how did i get toenail fungus in the first place.

Onychomychosis – Fungus of the nails

Is a bacterial infection that originated in our nail beds and you can get fungal toe and finger nails

Your Toes With Fungus Will Look

what does toenail fungus look like

  • Nails become very thick especially on the nail tips
  • Discoloured in appearance
    (White lines and spots)
    (Black/ Brown Lines and spots)
    (Yellow)
    (Large white patches)
  • Toenails become flaky and heavily calloused
  • White stuff under the toenails
  • Ridged and growth is upwards rather then outwards

Risk factors

  • Toenails become very thick and hard to cut with regular clippers
  • Thickness of nails may cause pressure and pain on your nail bed
  • A Foul Odour or Smell is caused by the bacteriatoenails smells like cheese
  • Toenail Fungus can spread to other toenails
  • Toenail may fall off from soft mushy dead fungus growth
  • Further infections to the skin and blood supply

Diabetics should seek immediate advice from a Foot Health Professional or Doctor to prevent infections to the foot.

Causes 

The causative pathogens of onychomycosis are all in the fungus kingdom and include dermatophytes, Candida (yeasts), and nondermatophytic molds.

Dermatophytes are the fungi most commonly responsible for onychomycosis in the temperate western countries; while Candida and nondermatophytic molds are more frequently involved in the tropics and subtropics with a hot and humid climate. Resource wikipedia

The 3 most common reason for toenail fungus i believe are:

  1. Poor foot wear that is made of plastics or non breathable material
  2. Sweaty feet and athletes foot infections
  3. Nail Varnish

Diagnosis

It is possible to have a microscopic biopsy using scrapping of your toenails but a visual diagnoses is the most common.

And this is what i do.

Also to be honest if your toenail shows the signs and symptoms as listed above i would say you most likely one of the 10% of the population that have toenail fungus.

Photos of Toenail Fungus

  1. white stuff under my toenail
    The nail appears to have white/ yellow stains on the nail. Often the colour starts at the base of the nail upwards.

 

what does toenail fungus look like
The Nail may split in large sections and a new soft flaky nail in found growing underneath

 

white stuff under toenail
Toenails become thick and hard to cut
what does toenail fungus look like
Yellow patches appear as the fungus on the nail bed gets worse, the nail will soon split and begin to SMELL.

What now?

So you have toenail fungus infection what can you do today to solve and treat the problem.

I would suggest you take immediate action and this is my personal treatment options i give to my patients.

But I would always recommend you talk to a health professional if you have any long term illness or conditions such as diabetes.

Cure nail fungus naturally a topical solution such as the Amoils Nail Fungus Treatment.

I like this treatment option because it is non aggressive and contains a strong powerful mixture of natural ingredients that will penetrate deep in the toenail bed and kill off the fungus from the root.

As the toenail is treated your nail may either fall off if the nail has lots of soft fungus underneath  it or you will notice as the new nail grows a pink healthy one coming from the cuticle.

You apply the oil 2 times a day and quickly the discolouration goes.

Other options to treat toenail fungus include using Vicks Vapour rub !

Yes apply to the toenails daily for 3 weeks and see a visible difference, the only problem this may cause the nail to lift off as it softens the bed quickly.

A new nail will grow if this happens.  Oh and it stinks of Viks!

Also if you just have a mild case of toenail fungus i like to try my patients on a bacterial cream like Daktarin or Mycota these are for Athletes foot conditions.

Ignore the instructions as such! rub the cream into the nails and around the skin of the toe. Max 10 days.

This is a good treatment when you have toenail fungus caused by acrylic nails and toenail varnish.

It draws out the discolouration fast.

Always read the instructions before applying.

Final point

Also make sure when you are treating the toenail fungus in your nails to trim and keep the nails short.

This will help cut out and encourage the nails to grow quicker.

Also repetition!

Please don’t expect miracles fungus takes many months to grow before you start to notice it on your nails.

It may take weeks and even months to totally heal so be patient.

So choose a product and plan that is easy to apply to your daily routine and one that will not only kill the fungus but protect you from the fungus returning.
