Feet are prone to aches and pains and a variety of problems and conditions. These may include corns and calluses, tinea, bunions, papillomas (plantar warts) and ingrown toenails. Most foot problems are easy to avoid and simple to treat, however it is important to be correctly diagnosed and treated by a professional.
