Topical

At Mississauga Foot Clinic, our foot specialists are able to prescribe a multitude of prescription medicine to help you with your foot issues. Depending on the condition, your foot specialist may be able to prescribe the proper medication to help resolve your foot issue. There are also several professional strength topical applications that your foot specialist can apply which aren’t available for home use to treat stubborn foot issues like plantar warts.

Unfortunately in Ontario, Chiropodists are regulated to prescribe medication based on a drug list and as new drug medications come out, it takes time to update the Chiropody drug list. There may be certain types of medication that your foot specialist may not be able to prescribe which will require you to visit your primary healthcare practitioner or walk-in clinic.
