Difference Between Orthopedist and Podiatrist?

My daughter has an overlapping second toe that is causing her discomfort. The pediatrician finally sent us to see a podiatrist. We have seen two podiatrist so far and with little luck. The first one put her in a boot to relieve her from pain and wanted to check her hips if the problem persist. As to why I have no clue. The x-rays came back with no breaks, fractures, tumors, or cyst. And normal bone growth. And the second one said to give her tylenol. There was nothing else they could do for her. I do not want to drug my child. And I can not...

Need a Remedy for Toenail Fungus

Does anyone have a home remedy or the name of a prescription medicine for a toenail fungus that has been successful? My toenail has come off twice and now is looking dark and ugly. I went to the Dr. and he advised against a prescription at the time saying it had side effects. Will be going back in a few weeks but was wondering if anyone else has had any success with this problem.

I really need help with anyone who's ever had plantar fascitis. I've been battling this for almost a year now and some times feel crippled with the pain. I've tried the rolling the foot a ball, anti-inflamatories, biofreeze, Dr. Scholl orthotics. I'm now ready for the heavy hitters.

Trying to save money wherever I can. I do have insurance but have not met my deductible...

Sore Ankle After Activity

My daughter is a big soccer player. This past season, she has complained intermittently about her ankle being sore after a game. I figured resting it when fall season was over would clear it up, but it hasn't...If she does any sort of running or jumping, her ankle is sore afterwards. Now indoor soccer is starting--and basketball as well. I'm worried about making it worse. No swelling, no limping, just aching after activity. Any ideas?

2 Y/o with Wart on Hand

My 2 year old daughter has what appears to be a wart on her hand, right in the crease where her ring finger meets her palm. It is fairly large, she picks at it occasionally but it doesn't otherwise seem to be bothering her. I am hesitant to ask to have it removed because not only would that be probably traumatic, but it seems like it would be a very difficult location to keep bandaged and cleaned afterwards. The over-the-counter wart creams all seem to contain salicylic acid, which my older daughter is highly allergic to, so I am hesitant...
