Resources

Over the years working with patients i have come across an enormous amount of foot care products and treatments that i have found beneficial to my patients.

I have been on many health related workshops and continued development courses for foot health.  And i have explored natural remedies for conditions as well as prescription and over the counter remedies.   I Get asked all the time what are the “best” Supports, Orthotics, Exercises which is why i thought i would share with you the products and treatment plans that I love & have used but more importantly whats be working for my patients.

This page consists of all the best resources for foot care products that i have used so you can start to improve your foot pain or condition.  Wherever it is a injury to your heel or you need help solving toenail fungus this section provides the tools you need to succeed

This page contains affiliate links. If you purchase a product through one of them, I will receive a commission (at no additional cost to you). I only ever endorse products that I have personally used  or my patients and benefitted from. Thank you for your support!

Products i recommend to my patients 

Foot creams

Split Cracked Heels –Gehwol Salve -#1 cream for severe rough cracked heels and skin.  Fast acting salve restores the worst splits and cracked heels in just a few days. Excellent product

Cold Feet CreamAlkileine Winter Chilblains, frost bite, poor circulation acts as a barrier

Everyday / Diabetic Foot Cream Gehwol blue this is my favourite cream that i use on my patients. Its a good allrounder including anti bacterial , diabetic friendly, nourishes and moisturises dry skin.

Sweaty Feet Cream – Gehwol Deodorant Great for hot sweaty feet, foot odours , shoes that stop your feet breathing like steel cap boots, athletes foot conditions . Anti odour and anti bacterial cream.

Hard Skin Electric Callous Removers

Scholl Velvet Smooth Diamond Pedi Remover  By far the best electric hard skin remover on the market very easy to use, cheap replaceable heads, smooths and polishes hard heels and feet.

Scholl Wet and Dry Pedi Remover – Great for holidays and using in the shower, same principal as the smooth model but waterproof and smaller. 2 speeds , abrasive roller files.

 

Insoles For Heel Pain

 

Wart & Verruca Treatments

Amoils Natural Wart Oil – This californian organic essential oil treatment is a strong wart treatment. For stubborn warts and verruca , easy application. No burning or scaring. Safe for children.  I advise my patients to apply a compeed plaster over the wart each day and this pulls the root and dead skin away faster.

Glutarol – Acid based topical treatment. Stronger then the likes of bazuka and wartner, this old chiropody treatment still works a treat. It contains salicylic acid so care needs to be taken on application and its not suitable for children under 8 years.
