What is a Podiatrist?

A podiatrist diagnoses and treats conditions affecting the feet. Sprains and fractures, bunions, heel spurs and heel pain, hammer toes, neuromas, ingrown toenails, warts, corns and calluses are among the problems we treat. To become a podiatrist, you must first take four years of graduate school to get a PhD in podiatry. Finally, podiatrists who choose to continue their studies in surgery or in care for diabetics, for example, must perform a number of years of residence. In Quebec, podiatrists must be members of the Ordre des podiatres du Québec to practice.

When Should You Consult a Podiatrist?

  • If you experience persistent foot pain.
  • If you notice a change in your nails or skin.
  • If you observe severe cracks, scales or flaking (skin loss) on your feet.
  • If you have blisters on your feet.
  • If you notice signs of bacterial infection, including:
    • Increasing pain, inflammation, redness, tenderness or heat.
    • A network of red lines from the affected area.
    • Pus or liquid.
    • If you have a fever of 37.78 ° C (100 ° F) or more, without any apparent cause.
  • If you have symptoms that persist beyond 2 weeks of treatment using an OTC product.
  • If you have an infection that spreads and affects other areas (nail bed, skin under the nail, nail and its contour, etc.).
  • If you suffer from discomfort caused by thickening of the nail.
  • If you are experiencing heel pain accompanied by fever, redness (sometimes heat), numbness or tingling in the heel, or persistent pain without putting weight or pressure on the heel, or pain that resists applying ice or taking aspirin, ibuprofen or acetaminophen.
  • If you have athlete’s foot.
  • Note that people who have diabetes or disorders related to poor circulation are more at risk to suffer from bacterial infections.
