Let’s Take Better Care of Our Feet This August

Let’s all make an effort to improve our foot health this month.

Our feet take a beating every day.  Unfortunately, many of us don’t think about our feet until something starts to go wrong. Rather than neglecting our feet and simply hoping for the best, we could be making an effort to improve our foot health.  Here are some suggestions to take better care of our feet.

  • Wash and Dry– While this sounds obvious, many of us get lazy when it comes to foot hygiene. When washing our feet, it’s important to make sure that we are cleaning between our toes and beneath our toenails.  It’s also important that we dry our feet thoroughly after getting out of the shower or bath.  Good hygiene may help to prevent issues such as athlete’s foot and other fungal and bacterial problems.
  • Moisturize and File– We also need to keep our feet well-moisturized by applying lotion on our feet and ankles.This may help to prevent painful cracking and other issues such as calluses and corns.  It’s also important that we regularly cut and file our toenails.  This may prevent infections, ingrown toenails, and other painful issues.
  • Wear Smart Footwear– For those of us who spend a lot of time on our feet, it’s important to prioritize comfort over fashion when it comes to our footwear. While heels and fancy dress shoes may look nice, they are often uncomfortable and can cause blisters, sore arches, and even foot cramps.  Rather than walking around in discomfort, we recommend selecting comfortable and supportive footwear which can be fashionable, supportive, and affordable.
  • Seek Expert Advice– For those of us with ongoing problems with our feet, such as unexplained foot pain or recurring athlete’s foot, we suggest seeking expert advice. Scheduling an appointment with a general practitioner, podiatrist, or another medical professional may help us take care of our feet and avoid more serious issues down the road.
