Indicators to help spot possible foot infections

Here are some indicators to help one spot possible foot infection:


  • Smell especially around, on the surface of, or under suspected nail, skin  or area (foul odour akin to rotten eggs or rotting cheese). Can be very pungent or sharp.
  • Colour. Necrotic colour like black, or lighter shade of white within toenail. Can also be slightly brown or yellow brown, and greenish.
  • Some oozing  (especially puss can be observed).
  • Itchiness
  • Nail thickening and accumulation of debris underneath.
  • changes in skin consistency or texture. for example, the affected area can be relatively harder when touched and can exhibit a different texture to what it originally was (for example ridges or hard spots). Can either be a single circular or bunched  appearance. With respect to toenails,  can be described as flaky and can easily crumble.
  • Inflammation, redness or swelling.
  • Pain

If one notices either one or a combination of the previously mentioned indicators, please contact AAA Foot Care for an appointment to help you with your concerns.
