FOOT HEALTH TIPS


  • Properly fitted shoes are essential ―an astonishing number of people wear shoes that don’t fit right, and cause serious foot problems.

  • A shoe with a firm sole and soft upper is best for daily activities.

  • Shop for shoes in the afternoon; feet tend to swell during the day.

  • Walking ―is the best exercise for your feet.

  • Pantyhose or stockings should be of the correct size and preferably free of seams.

  • Do not wear constricting garters or tie your stockings in knots.

  • Never cut corns and calluses with a razor, pocket knife, or other such instrument; use over-the-counter foot products only with the advice of a podiatrist.

  • Bathe your feet daily in lukewarm (not hot) water, using a mild soap, preferably one containing moisturizers, or use a moisturizer separately. Test the water temperature with your hand.

  • Trim or file your toenails straight across.

  • Inspect your feet every day or have someone do this for you. If you notice any redness, swelling, cracks in the skin, or sores, consult your podiatrist.

  • Have your feet examined by a DPM at least twice a year.
