Inflammatory Skin Conditions

Many inflammatory skin conditions can affect your feet. These conditions are also referred to as autoimmune skin disorders.   

Your Chiropodist can help you manage the foot symptoms of inflammatory skin conditions. Treatments will typically be a combination of hands on care in the office and at home topical cream application.


Foot care addresses the thick or damaged nails, calluses or cracked skin which often occurs with inflammatory skin conditions. Topical over-the-counter creams that may benefit you will be recommended. Chiropodists can prescribe some topical medications that can address skin inflammation.  

Commonly seen inflammatory skin conditions include
