Simple steps can be taken to prevent foot problems.
Prevention is the KEY!

  • Wash your feet daily in warm (not hot) water.

  • If your going to soak your feet, no longer than 10 minutes!

  • Dry well between your toes.

  • If your skin is dry apply lotion, but never put grease in a crease, (that means no lotion between the toes!)

  • Check for cracks between the toes (dryness and cracks in your skin allow bacteria to grow, increasing the risk of infection).

  • NEVER use sharp scissors or razors on or near your feet!

  • Stop smoking because smoking constricts blood vessels, which will cause poor circulation to your feet.

  • Protect your feet from injury and wear good supportive footwear.

  • Seek professional help if you are unable to care for your own feet.
