How to Take Care of Your Feet

Tuesday, 23 May 2023 00:00

We underestimate how much time we spend on our feet and how much wear and tear they go through. When we stop and think about just how much our feet do for us, we can more fully appreciate the need to spend some time and energy taking care of them. A foot care routine can easily be implemented, and the payoffs are substantial. A proper foot care routine starts with looking at the feet more frequently to assess whether there are cuts, cracked heels, corns, or blisters that need to be tended to. Those with diabetes need to use particular care in examining their feet for developments that can turn into infections. Good regular foot care includes washing, drying, and moisturizing the feet each day, wearing shoes that are comfortable and the right size, and keeping the toenails trimmed by cutting them straight across and rounding the edges with a nail file. A pampering foot massage and a pedicure are icing on the cake in foot care. If you want to know more about how you can take care of your feet, it is suggested that you talk to a podiatrist about what other things you can do to maintain their health and functioning.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact Dr. Gerald Perelman from Ohio. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Everyday Foot Care

Often, people take care of their bodies, face and hair more so than they do for their feet. But the feet are a very important aspect of our bodies, and one that we should pay more attention to. Without our feet, we would not be able to perform most daily tasks.

It is best to check your feet regularly to make sure there are no new bruises or cuts that you may not have noticed before. For dry feet, moisturizer can easily be a remedy and can be applied as often as necessary to the affected areas. Wearing shoes that fit well can also help you maintain good foot health, as well as making it easier to walk and do daily activities without the stress or pain of ill-fitting shoes, high heels, or even flip flops. Wearing clean socks with closed shoes is important to ensure that sweat and bacteria do not accumulate within the shoe. Clean socks help to prevent Athlete’s foot, fungi problems, bad odors, and can absorb sweat.
