My toenail got ripped off and grew back short thick & yellow. What's a working cream or medicine to use for over the counter? Most effecting please!!!
The problem here:
Is you need to know if the toenail became fungal or if that nail is thick for other reasons..I.e bacterial colonization or subungual keratinazation. A thick yellow stubby nail is not always fungal.
Topical meds for fungus are not highly effective either. If your inclined to try one you can but you will be applying for many months duration & 1 is not necessarily better than others. ...Read more

How can I get rid of ingrown toe nails? I have major problems with ingrown toenails, i clip them out only to have them back in a short period of time.
Ingrown nails: Many times, ingrown nails are actually caused by a deformity at the nail root or matrix. If you have had to remove them several times, chances are some type of surgical procedure would need to be done to stop the nail from growing at that border. It is a simple procedure and has very good outcomes. ...Read more

Short Leg: Yes. Having one side shorter can cause compensations throught the knees, hips, back and neck. A simplme lift to the shoe can help to couteract all of this. See a foot and ankle specialist for a complete exam and to see if special inserts or a shoe modification can help you out. ...Read more
I am 5, 3 foot, going to be 17. I am short. Should i train weight (lift weights). Or wait till 18? Is it ok to build lean muscle if short.
It is very safe to build muscle.
If you haven't exercised in a long time, then work into it gradually.
If you are lifting at a gym, work with others and they should help you gradually increase your weights and reps.
If you are lifting at home, then ask a friend that lifts or google a program.

I am normally healthy but after recent trauma to my foot (10 stitches to top of my foot) I have swollen foot after short time. What can I do?
Ran half marathon and top of foot sore next day only. No pain after 2 weeks rest but reaggravated post short run. Anything to do besides rest/ice?
New socks, shoes?: My personal experience having run dozens of marathons (five bostons) is that any recurring pain on the top of the foot may be the result of running shoe wear or possible "bunching" irritation of socks. I would rest for a longer period of time and/or try new shoes and socks. If that doesn't work, i would contact a sports medicine group and/or a physical therapist. ...Read more
It feels like i'm walking on a marble under the ball of my foot. It becomes excruciating after a short period of driving or walking. What is this?
I have bow legs and heard you can get surgery to fix this. I am 26 and only 5 foot 4 inches and heard that the surgery makes you shorter is this true?
Probably not.: You can be born with bowed legs (genu barnum) or develop them secondary to medial (inner knee) joint arthritis. Generally surgery involves removal of a wedge of bone which would shorten the bone, but the once the correction of the angular deformity is done, it more than compensates for this. Imagine the letter "l" as your leg. If you straighten it out, you'll make it longer. ...Read more
I've been doing a patio the last 2 weeks and on Thursday this pain come in my heel on the right foot and when I rest it for a short it hurts to walk ?
Plantar fasciitis?: Hello, your symptoms sound like they could be the result of a very tight heel cord. We call this plantar fasciitis. This responds to stretching the heel cord and other conservative measures, such as using a heel cup shoe insert, rolling a frozen golf ball with your heel 15 minutes at a time, and massage. See a doctor for further diagnosis and treatment, or a referral to a podiatrist if necessary. ...Read more
I have been to the doctors, I have possibly have a ganglion on the base of my 4th toe on my left foot. What is the way to deal with it long/short term?
Ganglion: A ganglion cyst usually occurs in a tendon sheath, and is full of a lubricating fluid. A podiatrist can drain the fluid with a needle and inject an anti-inflammatory medication. Please don't try to treat it by striking it, which is more of a folk remedy. Ibuprofen or alleve, and ice, aren't likely to help much. ...Read more
