Several Methods of Good Foot Care

There are many people who feel self conscious about their feet as the summer months approach. They may not have paid proper attention to their feet during the colder months when shoes are worn every day. There are simple practices that can help the  feet to look and feel good. These can include trimming the nails once per week, moisturizing the feet after a shower or bath, and wearing shoes that fit correctly. It is beneficial to trim the nails straight across, and this may help them to remain healthy and strong. When proper care is given to the feet, it can help to prevent unsightly foot conditions that can include fungal infections, plantar warts, bunions, and hammertoes. Additionally, good foot care can include wearing socks that have adequate cushioning, and flat shoes are preferred over high heels. If you would like more information about additional tips on how to practice everyday foot care, please consult with a podiatrist.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact one of our podiatrists from Comprehensive Footcare Clinic - Hawaii. Our doctors 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.
