There are many types of fungal nail condition. This particular case shows a green fungal nail infection which is growing between the nail plate and the nail bed underneath.

In this particular case, the nail can be treated by totally removing the nail and anti-fungal medication apply directly to the nail bed and allowing the nail to fully re-grow. Make an appointment to see the podiatrist to discuss your individual fungal nail issues and which is the most appropriate treatment for your case.

Nail polish is a waterproof barrier and toenails have moisture that comes up from the skin, under the toenail and out of the toenail plate into the atmosphere. If you continue to wear nail polish for too long, moisture builds up between the space of the nail and the toenail polish creating cracking and natural fungus increases and becomes white fungal craters on the surface of toenail. If this is caught early do not reapply nail polish to hide or cover it. Make an appointment with the podiatrist as soon as possible and the podiatrist will remove all the superficial cracking and apply a strong anti-fungal nail lacquer to kill any existing fungus and the nail will have immediate visual improvement.

Pedicures can be a lovely and relaxing experience when all goes well. A serious problem can arise when a pedicure goes badly wrong.

Sometimes the nail can be trimmed too much down the sides and this can lead to severe sensitivity of the nail plate pressing on the nail bed instead of the tough skin at the side where the nail is supposed to sit in its tracks. This tough skin is called the nail sulcus and should never be removed although most people refer to it as ‘hard skin at the sides’.

Another problem can be serious fungal nail infection that can occur from removing the safety barrier which is called the nail cuticle. We can explain the safety of the nail cuticle in terms of your bathroom. For example, the bath has silicone putty around the edges to stop water from leaking down the sides of the bath in between the space of the bath and the wall.

Without this special silicone seal, the water would become mouldy and fungus would grow in between the space of the bath and the wall. This is what the cuticle is there to prevent. It creates a seal where the nail goes under the skin into the root of the nail. Without the cuticle, moisture builds up in that space and starts a fungal infection which affects the nail root and starts to grow a fungal nail.

Incorrect nail cutting is one of the biggest ‘pedicure gone wrong’ problems that we see in our clinic at the Dubai Podiatry Centre. Usually a nail spike is left and creates a big infection as the body tries to reject the foreign object, which is actually part of the existing nail plate.

Another common problem is when the nail is cut away too much at the sides which can lead to irritation and most likely an infection.

If you have received a pedicure which has left you with sensitivity or infection, make an appointment as soon as possible with the Podiatrist to check the toenail status. Leaving it too long can lead to the toenail becoming so infected that the nail needs to be removed completely.

Most flatfeet that we see here in our clinic at Dubai Podiatry Centre are actually not real flatfeet. Most of the conditions we see involve the ankle rolling inwards, which depresses the arch in the foot. Making an orthotic that addresses the ankle deviation by aligning the ankle into a straight position will engage and lift the arches up again. This movement is achieved with an orthotic that is tilted. In almost every case, one foot leans in more than the other. Therefore, the tilts added to the left and the right orthotic will be different. Just as lenses in eye glasses are usually different prescriptions, this is also the case for orthotics that correct the ankle misalignment.


There are many different types of fungal nail infection.

The nail plate can have a simple superficial fungal infection that can develop from wearing socks and shoes for too long, having toes that cross over one other and smother one nail or keeping nail polish on for too long. These types of nail fungus are very easily treated by cleaning the top of the nail. The Podiatrist will use a diamond drill to finely polish the nail like the dentist cleans your teeth with. Application of an anti-fungal nail lacquer on to the top of the nail will prevent further fungal growth for some time.

A deeper, more stubborn type of nail fungus is found in the nail root, nail plate and also under the nail plate on the nail bed. This type resistant to treatment with oral and topical anti-fungals.

The only way to clear this type of deep rooted fungal infection is to remove the nail plate from the root and apply antifungal medicine to the exposed nail bed and nail root. This will allow a fresh and healthy nail to grow back again and the natural shape of the nail to return rather than the curved and split fungal nail. See the photo of deep nail infection from before and after. The nail took 11 months to completely grow back and have 2 trimmings to look like this normal nail again. Make an appointment to discuss your fungal nail options.

The Dubai podiatry Centre has been in Dubai on Sheikh Zayed road for 18 years. Our doctors are specialist in the foot and leg and can easily treat persistent and painful foot corns.

There are different types of feet for different ethnic groups all over the world. With Indian feet, we see most have high foot arches and excellent foot position. However, this gives a problem with the weight-bearing aspect of the foot. The high load areas from heel to fore foot when there is a high arch in the middle means there is excessive pressure under the bones of the forefoot.

With most Indian feet, there is very little fat pad underneath the foot. This means the bones press against the skin and painful callouses and corns develop. We are specialized in these cases and we make special innersole to be worn with shoe to lift the bones back up again for three months. A special device which is easy to use can be used in the house to pull the skin layers back to normal. For severe corns, there is a corn removal treatment available to remove deep tissue corns also. Flying from India to Dubai is easy and a big appointment will be made so that all your treatment can be carried out in the same time.


By sending photographs and messages through WhatsApp to our telephone number 00971503553024, we can organize the best treatment for you and give you a cost plan before making your appointment.

A plantar wart is a painful lesion on the foot. It is a localised virus which can already to surrounding areas or even the fingers of picked at.

The virus depletes the blood flow to the area. On magnification using a microscope, reddish-black spots can be seen. These are the tiny blood vessels called capillaries, that have been starved of blood flow and darken as a result. The nerves are also pulled up and out towards the surface and constricted which is what causes pain.


Using the suction device at home every night for 10 minutes after a bath or shower to soften the area improves the blood flow and helps the body to fight the virus by providing healthy tissue to the area.
