Dear patients and visitors,
Please know that our office is following all recommended guidance
from public health authorities, including best practices for hygiene,
infection control and medical professional team health. Our highest
priority is to keep all our patients and staff as safe as possible. Due to
Governor Tony Evers’ SAFER AT HOME orders, we will have limited
hours and staffing until the orders end on May 26 th or later if these
orders should be extended. We will only be seeing a limited number of
patients and only those where the appointment is necessary for their
immediate health and safety. We ask that anyone who enters our office
practices social distancing of 6 feet and covers their mouth and nose
when you cough or sneeze. Please STAY HOME IF YOU ARE SICK.
If you call our office and no one answers, please leave us a message.
Someone will be checking messages several times a day and will get
back to you. Thank you for your patience and understanding during
these trying times. We all need to work together to keep everyone in
our community safe and to minimize the risk to one another.
Bay Area Foot Clinic
Contact dermatitis of the foot is an inflammation of the skin in response to an irritant. This irritant is something with which the foot has come into contact, such as materials and chemicals with which shoes are made, poison ivy or harsh chemicals.
When the skin of the foot comes into contact with the substance, an allergic response is initiated. Symptoms, including redness, itchiness, and small blisters, usually occur within 24 hours of exposure to the irritant. The symptoms should be evaluated by a foot and ankle surgeon for proper diagnosis and treatment.
