FOOT CARE TIPS
Follow these simple tips and you will be making great strides in maintaining foot health.
- Remember that foot pain is not normal and should never be ignored.
- Inspect your feet regularly, paying close attention to color changes, foot temperature and changes in the toenails, as well as cracks, cuts, peeling, scaling or any growths.
- Wash your feet daily, being sure to wash and dry thoroughly between your toes.
- Toenails should be trimmed straight across…but not too short!
- Properly fitted shoes are important. Shop for new shoes later in the day when feet are at their largest.
- Wear moisture-absorbing socks.
- Do not walk barefoot, as this will increase your chances of injury or infection.
- Care for your feet by moisturizing them (but not in between the toes).
- Do not attempt to treat ailments by yourself.
