Ten Tips For Your Toes

  1. Let your feet air and sun. Shoes promote warm, dark, humid conditions that contribute to bacterial-fungal infections.
  2. Avoid walking barefoot on streets or unfamiliar areas. Walking barefoot in your own home can even be a hazard. Stubbed toes an be extremely painful.
  3. After a bath or shower, dry your feet carefully between your toes.
  4. Wear clean socks daily. Select socks that reduce friction. Blends of acrylic fiber, cotton, or wool allow our feet to breathe.
  5. Corns and calluses develop from rubbing and pressure from shoes. Choose a good fitting shoe. Lamb’s wool cushions reduce pressure.
  6. Promote circulation to your feet by walking. Foot massage, foot soaks in warm water, and elevating your feet also provide comfort and help circulation.
  7. Check your feet for blisters, cuts and infection. Use a mirror to check area that you can’t see.
  8. Cut toe nails straight across.
  9. If you feet are cold, put on another pair of socks. Avoid using hot water bottles or heating pads.
  10. Don’t smoke. Smoking reduces blood flow and oxygen supply.
