The common symptom in all types of onychocryptosis is extreme pain. Apart from that the patient will also face some minor discomfort in placing the feet on the ground. The patient will also feel a pressure from the side of the nail and this happens as it is actually penetrating the skin down the side of the nail. After a nail penetrated inside the skin the toe is obviously to be infected. If not taken proper care, the infection may spread, making the toe inflamed and red. Apart from that a collection of pus may also develop. It is also helpful to actually injure a plant slightly when trying to force it to develop roots. When a plant is injured, it develops a callous over the wound as protection. This callous build up is necessary before roots will develop. Cutting just below a node on the bottom of a cutting causes the plant to develop callous and eventually, roots. If you or your child continuously gets warts, make sure to avoid walking barefoot. Change socks and shoes daily. Keep feet clean and dry, and pay attention to any changes that occur on your feet. Corns can usually be easily seen. They may have a tender spot in the middle, surrounded by yellowish dead skin. Treatment of corn use a pumice stone. Applying lanolin-enriched lotion to help the skin become soft around the corn can also be an option. Wearing a donut-shaped foam pad over the corn will also help relieve the pressure. Use non-medicated corn pads; medicated pads may increase irritation and result in infection. Treating foot corns by using removing ointments that contain acid can damage healthy skin on the other areas of the foot. Tailor's bunions may or may be painful deformities. If pain is present, it usually occurs with shoes. The area becomes painful when the bony prominence of fifth metatarsal head rubs against the shoe, resulting in pain and inflammation. Continued shoe friction against the tailor's bunion can cause swelling, redness and callus formation. On examination, there is pain when pressure is applied to the outside or bottom of the fifth metatarsal head. A fluid-filled pouch, called a bursa, may be found between the bone bump and the skin. This forms as a process of the body's protective mechanism to protect the bone against the friction from the shoe. The most common disorder is called sesamoiditis. This is inflammation of the sesamoid bone and is usually caused by repetitive trauma. It is commonly seen in young adults, athletes, dancers and women that wear high heel shoes. Most of the time, the pain from sesamoiditis is worse with shoes when weight bearing. The pain is located directly under the sesamoid where swelling and redness maybe noted. Try not to walk barefoot on hard or firm surfaces such as asphalt or concrete for any length of time, or protective calluses will begin to form on the soles of your feet On the lateral side of the ankle there are three ligaments that make up the lateral ligament complex. These include the anterior talofibular ligament (ATF), the calcaneofibular ligament (CF) and the posterior talofibular ligament (PTF). The very common inversion injury to the ankle usually injures the anterior talofibular ligament and the calcaneofibular ligament. The ATF ligament keeps the ankle from sliding forward and the CF ligament keeps the ankle from rolling over on its side. Breaks in the metatarsal bones may be either stress or traumatic fractures. Certain kinds of fractures of the metatarsal bones present unique challenges. Another consequence of the jamming of the big toe joint is the development of bone spurs on the top of the joint. This bump on the top of the big toe joint can become painful as a result of shoe pressure. Pain within the joint is a common result of the limitation of movement of the big toe joint. With time, the big toe joint becomes stiff and painful to move. As the joint continues to degenerate more bone spurring occurs. If the condition is left untreated complete destruction of the joint can occur.
