Tattoos and Eczema

Tattoos and EczemaIt seems that tattoos are getting more and more popular by the day, giving us the incorrect impression that getting a tat is risk free. Having eczema doesn’t mean that you cannot get inked, just that you’ll have to take some extra precautions. You should wait to have work done if you’re having a flare-up. Also, you’ll want to check to see if you have an allergy to the ink that’s being used.

You will want to address any concerns you have about getting a tattoo with your dermatologist before heading out to the tattoo parlor. Many tattoo artists will offer to do a test tattoo to see if you react to the ink.

While eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a chronic condition, the symptoms can lay dormant for months or years. A flare-up may be preceded by itchiness and redness. If you are experiencing these symptoms you will want to reschedule your tattoo appointment. You can reschedule once your flare-up has completely passed.

Tattoos and an Increased Risk with Eczema

Eczema is a condition of the autoimmune system. It often will flare-up when the immune system kicks into overdrive. Although Eczema may develop as a child, but sometimes in adults later. Additionally, there seems to be a genetic factor as eczema tends to run in families. Common triggers include:

  • acute illnesses
  • air pollution
  • chemical exposure
  • environmental allergies

There are some risks inherent with getting a tattoo. The risks of these side effects increase if you suffer from eczema or another preexisting skin condition. Your skin is already sensitive when you have skin conditions such as psoriasis. A tattoo can make this sensitivity even worse.

Tattoos and EczemaPossible Side Effects of Tattoos and Eczema

What can happen if I get a tattoo? Those that have eczema have a higher chance of experiencing skin reactions due to their hypersensitivity. These reactions may include:

  • an eczema flare-up (increased itching and redness)
  • an increase in itchiness during the healing process
  • scarring from improper healing
  • a rare allergic reaction to the ink used for the tattoo
  • development of an infection
  • hyper- or hypopigmentation (change to skin color)
  • appearance of keloids (large, raised scars)

Some people get tattoos to cover scars from a previous eczema flare-up. Having a tattoo done over a scar increases the risk of hyper- or hypopigmentation. It can also contribute to the development of keloids.

Plantar Fasciitis Treatment 101

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis (pronounced PLAN-tur fas-e-I-tis) is caused by an inflammation in the heel of the foot. It is one of the most commonly diagnosed causes of heel pain in active men and women between the ages of 40 and 70. It’s primary cause is the inflammation of the thick, weblike ligament connecting your toes to your heel bone called the plantar fascia.

The pain brought on by plantar fasciitis can be debilitating. Luckily there are several in-home remedies that may be able to relieve the pain in your heel. While there have not been many medical studies into their efficacy, these methods have been used by million suffering from plantar fasciitis. You may find that they work better alone or in combination with one another.

  • Get off your feet. Let your feet rest by limiting or, if at all possible, eliminate those daily activities which exacerbate your heel pain. When possible, refrain from walking or running on concrete and other hard surfaces.
  • Wear proper footwear. The right arch support and good shock absorption are essential characteristics of appropriate footwear. Select an athletic shoe or a shoe with a lot of cushion in the sole.
  • Always wear your shoes. Put them on as soon as you get up. Not wearing shoes or going barefoot can make the pain worse. Avoid slippers as they don’t have the support that is needed.
  • Use shoe inserts. Many retailers carry shoe inserts (over-the-counter orthotics) and heel cups designed to help cushion the heel. Even if you only have pain in one foot, you should always use them in both shoes or you run the risk of developing other conditions.
  • Ice your heel. Icing the affected heel will relieve the pain by reducing inflammation.
  • Take a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Ibuprofen (such as Motrin or Advil), naproxen (for example Aleve) and other over-the-counter nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs will alleviate the pain. NSAIDs are most commonly taken orally via pills but many also have a cream that can be rubbed over the sore area.

Stretch you feet and legs. Doing simple exercises like, calf stretches, towel stretches and toe stretches can make your ligament more flexible. It will also build strength in the muscles that support your foot arch. Do them several times a day, most importantly first thing in the morning.

spider veinsI think I might have spider veins. What should I do now?

If you notice symptoms of spider veins ,a venous condition in their lower extremities, especially if you have numerous risk factors, we recommend that you come in for a consultation. We can use non-invasive ultrasounds and a thorough physical examination to test for chronic venous insufficiency. By getting a full picture of your vein health, we can insure that we are recommending the most appropriate medical treatment. If, during the exam, an underlying venous disease is found, we will first treat the chronic condition and then take steps to address the symptoms. 

On the other hand, if there is no evidence of an underlying venous disease then your superficial veins can be properly managed right here at the Advanced Vein Center. 

This past summer I noticed an increase in the number of those ugly blue veins on my legs. I booked an evaluation online for the Advanced Vein Center for after our beach vacation. When I went in, they ran some painless tests and as it turns out my veins are healthy. They suggested some treatments and provided me with a lot of information to make me feel comfortable about my decision. Next summer I won’t have to hide my legs under a wrap while at the beach.

-Laura (age 33)

Call our sister company Body Beautiful for those tiny ugly veins and Zap them away!

Zap Away your Spider Veins Laser/light therapy is an exciting new procedure in the field of spider vein treatment. Laser/light therapy safely uses light energy to erase painful and unsightly veins. The therapeutic method is 100% toxin-free and non-invasive, giving you the results you deserve without the risks or down-time that come with other forms of treatment. How does it work? Researchers and practitioners have been able to apply the seemingly limitless potential of lasers to the field of vein treatment. A carefully calibrated laser focuses photon energy on the unwanted blood cells in the vein. As the laser is applied to the spider veins the photons create heat energy strong enough to destroy the blood vessel but at safe enough levels to leave other tissue and structures unharmed. What are the possible risks? Like with any kind of treatment, there are some risks associated with laser therapy. While they are rare and relatively minor, they can occur.

An overview of hammertoes and related deformities

hammertoesHammertoes are often easily corrected in the office in a 15 minute procedure, allowing you to walk out with a light dressing. Those and mallet toe are relatively common deformities affecting the foot. The involved toes are instantly recognizable by their bent appearance. These conditions affect can affect all structures of the toe including ligaments, tendons, joints, and bones. In milder cases the toes may have some mobility. Advanced cases tend to be fixed deformities and the toes entirely immobile.

This type of the deformity involves flexion of the involved toes. This simply means that the toes flex forward in a “clenched” position. They become locked in this position to varying degrees and are unable to straighten.

Hammertoes affect the 2nd through 4th toes, meaning that the big toe (1st) and pinkie toe (5th) are spared. Note that the 1st and 5th toes are not immune, and are prone to other types of bone and joint deformities. In the case of hammertoe, the middle joint of the toe is affected. In the case of mallet toe the distal joint (the one closest to the toenail) is affected.

Besides being unsightly the main symptom of both deformities are discomfort and pain due to abnormal pressure. It’s repetitive friction injures such as blisters, corns, and calluses are also common. In more severe cases the patient’s gait may become altered which can make walking more difficult.

The main cause of hammertoe and mallet toe is ill-fitting footwear. In very mild cases relief may be as simple as wearing shoes that fit properly. In the most severe cases surgery may be the only workable option. While such operations are often effective they should only be considered after all conservative treatments have failed.

What causes hammertoe and mallet toe?

Hammertoe symptoms PittsburghThese hammertoe deformities have several well-established causes which include:

  • Poorly fitting footwear: any shoes or boots which don’t allow the toes to lie flat have the potential to cause either deformity. Overly tight toe boxes are also major contributors. Note that high-heeled shoes are notorious for causing these conditions and several others.
  • Injury: trauma such as a severely stubbed toe can set a patient up for hammer or mallet toe. Poorly set fractures can also play a role.
  • Abnormal toe musculature: this can cause poor biomechanics which can lead to a host of foot conditions. This includes the deformities mentioned above.

Common risk factors for hammertoe

Some patients are much more likely to develop foot deformities than others. Common risk factors include:

  • Age: hammertoe and mallet toes occur much more frequently in the 5th-7th decades.
  • Gender: females are more prone to these conditions than males. The exact reasons for this are unknown.
  • Length of toes: individuals with a 2nd toe that’s longer than the big toe are at an elevated risk.
  • Systemic diseases: those with certain types of arthritis are more prone to developing these deformities. This includes osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Diabetes can also be a contributing factor..
  • Heredity: if you have a close relative with hammertoes or mallet toes you may be affected as well.

Complications of hammertoe and associated deformities

In its early stages a hammer or mallet toe will usually have some flexibility. In later stages, especially without early treatment, the tendons which cross the toe joints become permanently contracted. This in turn permanently fixes the toe into an abnormal position. At this point surgery is often the only viable option for re-straightening the toe.

Once the deformity becomes permanent the raised portion of the toe tend to rub against the patient’s shoe. This leads to repetitive friction which can cause blisters, corns, and calluses which range from mildly uncomfortable to outright painful. Can often be easily corrected in the office in a 15 minute procedure, allowing you to walk out with a light dressing.

How Do You Get Fungus Toenail infection

Fungus Toenail infectionResearch done by Strisower’s team seems to have found that this isn’t such a simple question. These researchers isolated more than 100 microorganisms responsible for causing what we know as onychomycosis, or Fungus Toenail infection. These include varieties of fungus, yeasts, mold, and even bacteria. What’s more, the team found that some of these organisms work together, always being found with one another, and thriving in this symbiotic relationship.

Fungus Toenail infection action

There isn’t one single mechanism of infection where toenail fungus is concerned. Infection occurs in places which range from nail salons to locker rooms. In reality it’s more a matter of environment and exposure. All types of fungus thrive in dark, moist environments, and wet shoes certainly fit the bill. This could mean almost anyone, but especially pertains to people such as landscapers and construction workers who wear boots for long periods. Shoes, in fact, are the reason why toenail fungus is much more common than fingernail fungus.

The risk of infection also increases with age. This is simply a matter of time–the longer someone has lived, the more years they’ve been exposed to the organisms which cause infection. It’s also commonly known that elderly patients often have weaker immune systems than other groups. States another Washington based podiatrist, Dr. Lee Firestone, over half of people over the age of seventy have nail fungus infections.

  • Make sure to thoroughly wash your foot, especially the problem area, each day with soapy water. Take care to keep the foot dry and clean for the remainder of the day.
  • Don’t wear ill fitting shoes. Shoes that are both too tight or too loose can further irritate a fungus toenail. High heel shoes are also off limits. If possible, consider wearing sandals until the problem returns to normal.
  • Some home remedies are a bit more daring, and usually don’t provide notable relief. Never use an instrument like tweezers, trying to lift up the edge of the nail or dig out under it, it will innoculate the fungus deeper.

Regenerative Medicine: minimally invasive alternatives to foot and ankle surgery.

Stem cells

Stem cells near meJoint surgery of the ankle or foot isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Invasive joint procedures performed by highly-skilled surgeons help millions of patients each year regain an active, pain-free lifestyle. The problem is that surgery doesn’t come with a guarantee of success. It’s also possible that surgery will make the problem worse—it can only cut, scrape, or stitch existing tissue. It can’t encourage healing or the growth of new, healthy tissue in any way.

A list of common lower extremity surgical techniques does nothing but highlight the limitations of an invasive approach. Advanced cases of bone-on-bone arthritis are often treated by “cleaning up” the joint surfaces with file-like tools. Any pieces of damaged cartilage which remain are simply removed. The cushioning, friction-reducing effects of these cartilage pads is lost forever.

Another option is complete joint fusion, which will permanently change how the affected leg functions in a negative manner. Knee, hip, and lower back pain can result as the biomechanics of the limb are altered. It’s a ripple effect that orthopedic doctors, podiatrists, and chiropractors are all familiar with.

Surgical resection is usually the best option orthopedic doctors can offer in cases of ligament or tendon tears. This is nothing more than cleaning up any rough edges, suturing them together, and hoping for the best. The connective tissue which makes up these structures has a poor blood supply, making recovery long and difficult. These procedures can also fail entirely, possibly requiring additional surgery.

checking for a sprained ankle

In other cases, surgery simply isn’t a good option for a particular condition. The severe heel pain of Plantar Fasciitis is a prime example. Other chronic problems aren’t “bad enough” to risk surgery, even if they cause a considerable negative impact. The ankle and joints of the foot are highly complex and bear the full weight of the body, as well. This adds an element of risk to even relatively simple procedures.

Our aim is to deliver effective, non-surgical treatments for a very wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions. This sounds like a bland, general statement, but in reality it’s extremely exciting. That’s because our treatments can improve or completely resolve the following stubborn, treatment-resistant conditions:

  • Plantar Fasciitis (chronic, often severe heel pain).
  • Chronically sprained ankles.
  • Other unstable joints.
  • Advanced arthritis (including bone-on-bone).

Stem cells have a comparatively minimal risk and can have great results!

My ingrown toenails keep coming back. The main causes of ingrown toenails?

ingrown toenails

Some people can go their whole life without ever suffering from ingrown toenails. So why to some people get them and others don’t? Some common causes and risk factors are:

  • Ill-fitting shoes or high heels: Tight shoes and high heels can cause the toes to be compressed together too tightly. The pressure can cause the nail to grow abnormally. Shoes that are too loose can can cause rubbing and irritation. The resulting inflammation can start the process of an ingrown toenail.
  • Improper trimming of toenails: If cut incorrectly, toenails can be more prone to becoming ingrown. Nail should not be cut below the tip of the toe and trimmed straight across, not rounded. Incorrect trimming techniques can cause the corners of the toenail to cut into the skin.
  • Genetics: Some underlying physical factors can be passed down through the family. The shape of the nail and the bone under the nail can be the result of heredity. If someone in your family has had an ingrown toenail then you are more likely to get one as well. 

When should I seek help for an ingrown toenail?

An ingrown toenail begins when a corner of the toenail cuts into the skin as it grows. An infection can occur at that site because the ingrown toenail breaks the skin barrier. Signs of an infection are soreness, redness and swelling. If allowed to progress, pus and/or blood will drain from the site. Since it can lead to some very serious repercussions, an infected ingrown toenail should not be ignored. It can lead to a serious infection of the deep tissue, a bone infection, or an infection on the blood. The National Institutes Of Health advise that those with poor circulation, nerve damage, AIDS, or diabetes to seek medical treatment right away. The ingrown toenail MUST be evaluated and treated by a Podiatrist near me.

Sweaty shoes, hotel rooms, pool decks, and locker rooms all can harbor HPV. This virus thrives in environments that are warm and moist. 

Runners, Gymnasts, and those with blisters and athletes foot are all at risk, as are children and pregnant women in particular. Since HPV enters the skin so people who may have a cut, scrape, crack, or skin that is waterlogged are especially at risk. That said, sometimes these entry points are so tiny you can’t even detect them.

Anyone can get a wart, but the elderly people, and those with conditions that compromise immune system function are also both at increased risk, and have a hard time fighting them.

THE SWIFT TREATMENT SYSTEM

Do open wounds or chronic sores put you at risk for infection?

chronic soresDo you suffer from acute or chronic sores? Do they cause you pain, discomfort of embarrassment? Do open wounds put you at risk for infection or other serious medical conditions? If you answered yes to any of the previous questions, then the dermaPACE was designed for you. Using ultramodern advances in shockwave technology, the dermaPACE promotes speedy wound recovery. While shockwaves have been used in the medical arena for almost 30 years, they have remained exclusively in the domain of orthopedic and kidney stone procedures. As medical professionals became more familiar with the results of shockwave technologies, some started to notice evidence that there was an unintended effect on wound healing. What was at first anecdotal evidence, soon became verified by rigorous scientific studies.

Thus, Pulsed Acoustic Cellular Expression (PACE) technology was developed. The dermaPACE is the first and only device to utilize specifically designed PACE protocols to treat wounds.diabetic ulcer

chronic sores

Applications for –  chronic sores

The dermaPACE apparatus is approved for the treatment of chronic defects of the skin and subcutaneous soft tissues (tissues under the skin). DermaPACE’s pulsed acoustic waves are effective on acute and post-operative wound including:

  • Arterial ulcers
  • Decubitus ulcers
  • Deep-partial thickness burns
  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Post-traumatic wounds
  • Venous ulcers

What Should I Expect? 

Most dermaPACE treatments take place at your Podiatrist’s Office. The appointment is scheduled; an intake appointment may or may have not been completed ahead of time. Regardless, you should expect to answer some basic questions and undergo a physical evaluation prior to the procedure. It is a good idea to wear loose-fitting clothing. You should be in general good health at the time of the appointment. You will be asked to sign an informed consent form prior to the treatment.
