Cotton Balls: An Ingrown Toenail Faux Paux

#AnchorageAK Do you place cotton balls under your ingrown toenails to try to relieve the pressure? Don’t!!
This is Doctor Mark Rindlisbacher, your favorite podiatrist in Anchorage, and today, I want to tell you why.
Cotton balls, especially if filled with some kind of medicinal solution or other fluid, can cause the toe area to remain moist and warm, which is the exact environment needed to create the growth of bacteria. Taking this risk creates the possibility of developing an infection or condition such as fungal nail.
If you have an ingrown toenail, it is best to see a podiatrist. I invite you to see me, Doctor Rindlisbacher, at my office in Anchorage.

The Importance of Wearing Cotton Socks

#AnchorageAK Your feet need to breathe.
Hi, I’m Doctor Mark Rindlisbacher, a podiatrist in Anchorage, and today I would like to talk to you about choosing your socks wisely.
Fabrics differ in their ability to absorb moisture and allow the skin to breathe. When it comes to socks, it is preferable to choose cotton fabric rather than nylon or wool, as it keeps feet dry and airy the best. This is important because fabrics that remain wet from perspiration can cause feet to develop bacteria and fungus, which can turn into ailments like fungal nail.
If you think you may have developed bacterial issues or even fungal nail, I invite you to stop by my office here in Anchorage.

Excessive Sweating and Fungal Nail

#AnchorageAK Do you sweat excessively? Do your socks become moist as a result?
I’m Doctor Mark Rindlisbacher, and today I would like to speak to my friends in Anchorage about the connection between excessive sweating and fungal nail.
When you sweat excessively, your skin remains warm and damp for an extended period of time. This environment presents an optimum opportunity for fungus to develop and especially attach itself to the nail. Those with this condition need to regularly be on guard against potential infections.
If you think you may have developed fungal nail, I invite you to visit my office here in Anchorage.
