Pedicured feet do not mix with foot examination

Foot examination requires that toenails are free from pedicure or cosmetic treatment-- especially toenail paint or polish.

Toe nails are an important part of foot examination. In its pedicure-free state, toenails provide an indication of its overall health (and blood circulation in the feet). Discoloured toenails, for instance, can indicate either trauma, poor circulation, fungal or bacterial infection (especially for the latter two when accompanied by foul odour and flaky or crumbly texture). Painted toenails or pedicure hides all these. And in cases of infection, can worsen the condition because it helps encourage the growth of unwanted pathogens. Fungi and microbes thrive in dark, dirty, warm, moist or sweaty environments.

So REMEMBER: When having your feet examined by us, PLEASE MAKE CERTAIN YOUR TOE NAILS ARE UNPAINTED or UNPOLISHED!

Hope you enjoyed reading and learning from the blogs so far. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to share some foot  health issues or share some thoughts, ideas or suggestions about foot health; or enquiries about our service.
