My name is Louise Brown (MSSCh MBChA HCPC Registered). I have over 20 years experience and cover all aspects of Foot Care, such as Nails, Callous, Skin Conditions, Verruca, Diabetics and much more.

On Monday & Tuesday I have a clinic based at Softsoles Health & Beauty, 35b Segrave Road, Milehouse, Plymouth.

(01752 812932). We offer home visits in Plymouth, Torpoint & surrounding areas. (07767397855).
An ingrown toenail develops when the sides of the toenail grow into the surrounding skin. The big toe is more often affected, and this can be either on one side of the toe or both sides. The nail curls and pierces the skin, which becomes red, swollen and tender and causes distress when putting pressure on it. Can be very painful if not treated.
Corns and calluses are areas of hard, thickened skin that develop when the skin is exposed to excessive pressure or friction. Corns themselves, are small circles of thick skin that usually develop on the tops and sides of toes or on the sole of the foot and cause pain and discomfort when you walk.
Verrucas (plantar warts), usually develop on the soles of the feet. The affected area of skin will be white, often with a black dot (blood vessel) in the centre and are flat rather than raised. They can at times be painful if they are on a weight-bearing part of the foot. Some public areas wont let you use their facilities until treated.
A bunion is a bony deformity of the joint at the base of the big toe. The medical name for this is hallux valgus and the main sign of a bunion is the big toe pointing towards the other toes on the same foot. This may force the foot bone attached to it (This being the first metatarsal) to stick outwards. Not very nice and should be treated as a matter of course.
The treatment was painless and professional, and made a world of difference. My foot feels so much better and without question, I highly recommend Louise Brown Chiropody!
I had a troublesome corn that had been bugging me for sometime. I eventually found the time to do something about it, and I'm so glad I went to see Louise. Cleaned, removed and I now feel like I'm floating along the road! Thank you so much!
Awesome Chiropodist, these guys know their stuff. First time I've been pain free for a long, long time. Highly recommended.
