Daily Foot Care Tips

Tuesday, 12 October 2021 00:00

Taking good care of your feet is one of the best ways to prevent a variety of foot ailments. It is very important to keep your feet clean and hygienic. This can be done by washing your feet daily with soap and water followed by drying them thoroughly. After this, apply a moisturizer to your feet to prevent dry, cracked heels, corns, and calluses. Another aspect of proper foot health is caring for your toenails. Keep your nails neat and trimmed. When trimming the toenails, use nail clippers to cut straight across and not too short to prevent ingrown toenails. After caring for your feet, make sure to put them in a pair of comfortable, properly-fitted shoes, and if you have any foot or ankle pain see a podiatrist for professional care.  

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact Dr. Thomas E. Silver from Westwood Foot Clinic. 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.
