NSAIDS and local steroid injections can be used, however not always needed. Surgery is not typical. Get better! ...Read more

Podiatrist: Some people say acupuncture helps. Best approach is to see a podiatrist to determine the actual cause of the heel pain.

Pa prescribed azithromycin for big toe infection -(skin around the toe.) is this a good medication for this? How many days to see improvement.?Thanks.

Yes: Azithromycin is good for the types of bacteria that cause skin infections, but there are others that work better. Many times the toe infection is due to an ingrown toenail and the nail needs to be treated or the infection will return once the antibiotics are stopped. If your toe looks like the picture it is an ingrown toenail. An antibiotic for skin infection should work within 2-3 days. ...Read more
