Finding a Podiatrist for a Child's Foot Problems in Ashfield, Haberfield or Strathfield

Children often experience the same foot problems as adults, including flat feet, heel pain, ingrown toenails, and more. Some of these conditions may occur more frequently or have different characteristics in children, though, thanks to their active lifestyles and developing bodies. Parents looking for a podiatrist in Croydon, Ashfield, Haberfield, or Strathfield should contact Family & Sports Podiatry, who have experience treating children’s foot problems. Some of the foot problems commonly seen in children include:

  • Ingrown Toenails: An ingrown toenail is a condition in which the edge of the toenail grows into the skin around it. This occurs most commonly on the big toe. Ingrown toenails cause pain and are prone to infection as well. Anyone can suffer from an ingrown toenail, but they are common in children and teens, sometimes because of tight-fitting shoes as feet grow.

  • Plantar Warts: A certain virus can cause skin lesions on the sole of the foot known as plantar warts. These can be easily mistaken for corns or calluses due to their similar appearance. A plantar wart will be firm with a circular shape, and upon close examination tiny black dots are visible within the lesion. A visit to a podiatrist in Ashfield, Haberfield, Strathfield, or Croydon is a good way to get an accurate diagnosis of the problem.

  • Flat Feet: Flat feet are those with no arches or only minimal arches, and are common in children. The condition may be outgrown, but if flat feet cause foot or leg pain, if the child has difficulty walking, or if only one foot is flat, the child will need to see as podiatrist in Haberfield, Strathfield, Croydon, or Ashfield such as Family & Sports Podiatry.

  • Heel Pain: Heel pain can be caused by a number of issues. One of the most common is plantar fasciitis, in which an area of the heel bone becomes inflamed. The tightness of the calf muscles and Achilles tendons during growth spurts contribute to children’s susceptibility to heel pain.
