Warts can cause discomfort and frustration for children and adults. Warts on the feet are called "Plantar Warts" or "Plantar Verruca" while warts on the hands are referred to as "Palmer Warts". They're caused by a virus and can appear anywhere on the skin. Children, especially teenagers, tend to be more susceptible to warts than adults and some people seem to be immune to warts altogether. Statics say that 25% of the population has a wart or warts at any given time and 1/3 of children in primary school have them. Although people of any age can develop these annoying skin irritation… kids, particularly those in early adolescence and younger, are especially susceptible.

Warts on the feet can grow deep and have a complex rooting system. When it comes to warts, the earlier the intervention, the better. Waiting and hoping they go away on their own will only make things worse. Dr. Reminga recommends a call to his office at Northern Foot Care Center, at the first sign of anything that appears to look like a wart, corn, or callus. Early intervention for treatment is the best course of action when it comes to warts on either the hands or feet.

Dr. Reminga says, “There isn't a one-size-fits-all approach when treating warts on the hands or feet in my office. As a specialist, I have a customized protocol when it comes to treatment options. They way I approach it is specific to each patient. This type of treatment is very effective in eradicating and eliminating warts.”

If you or someone you know has one wart or many warts, today’s program will be one of interest. Listen to “What’s Up With Warts” and learn how Dr. Reminga can help you get rid of this bothersome skin condition.

Dr. Daniel Reminga's Weekly Radio Show "Your Feet Your Health" airs every Wednesday at 10 am & 5 pm on WKMJ 93.5FM, WMPL 920AM, WUPY 101.1FM radio. Listen to past recordings here.

In today's program, Dr. Reminga from Northern Foot Care Center, talks about diabetic wounds on the feet and ankles. Have you heard the saying “Time heals all wounds”? This, however may not be true for diabetic wounds. A diabetic wound or ulceration is an open sore or wound that most often occurs on the bottom of the foot. Of those with diabetes, who develop a wound on the foot, some of those wounds will become non-healing wounds due to infection or a ulcer-related complication. Statistics tell us that 14-24% of patients with diabetes who develop a foot ulcer will require amputation.

Foot ulcers are a common complication of poorly controlled diabetes, they form as a result of skin tissue breaking down and exposing the layers underneath. They’re most common under the big toes and the balls of the feet. There are 29 million people in the United States that have diabetes. Anyone who has diabetes can develop a foot ulcer.

Dr. Reminga talks about this diabetic foot condition in depth and goes on to discuss the ramifications of developing a foot ulcer that doesn’t heal. He also provides hope for people that have diabetic foot ulcer that won’t heal. Dr. Reminga has a very specific and effective protocol in treating these ulcers. Listen to today’s program to find out more about this diabetic foot condition.

In today’s program, Dr. Reminga from Northern Foot Care Center, talks about children's feet and offers some helpful guidance for parents. When considering the health of their children, parents do everything they can to help them grow up healthy and strong. Parents get their children vaccinated, take them to the dentist and optometrist, and they do their best to ensure their kids eat a nutritious diet to help them grow but... what about the important role foot health plays in their overall development? This is an important question and one Dr. Reminga will answer in this program. Another question he Dr. Reminga answers is in regards to the term "growing pains". This term is widely overused and there is no evidence that links this term to a child's growth.

Children's feet drastically change during their developmental years. A child's body is in a constant state of change as they mature and the feet are no different. The greatest changes in foot growth occur in the first 3 years of a child's life. Children's feet are developing at a rapid rate and need specialized care and attention as a result. Remember... the foot is a complex structure comprised of 26 bones. Together, the feet contain more than a quarter of all the bones in your body. These bones are designed to support the entire body, adapt to uneven surfaces, absorb shock, and carry our bodies over a lifetime.

Dr. Reminga treats children regularly in his office at Northern Foot Care Center. He says, “When a parent brings their child into my office, they are often directed by their own good judgement and instincts. Way too often, I've heard parents say that they've been told... Not to worry... their child will "grow out of" foot or ankle pain and they should just write it off as "growing pains". This is a dangerous statement and one that should never be said.”

Listen to today’s program to find out more about your child’s feet and the importance of early detection when it comes to their foot and ankle pain.I NOW know you do that!
