1. Clean Your Feet Daily...
Wash your feet daily in lukewarm water.
Use a soft washcloth or sponge and gentle soap. Then, rinse thoroughly and dry your feet completely before donning socks and shoes.
2. Inspect Your Feet Regularly...
Check your feet for blisters, redness, small cuts, or cracked skin. If you can't see the bottom of your feet, use a hand mirror with magnification.
Never ignore a problem with your feet. If you notice any problems, contact a doctor or physical therapist.
3. Cut Nails Carefully and Regularly...
Keep your nails trimmed, but not too short. Nails that are cut too short can become ingrown and cause soreness or infection.
It is best to cut nails straight across and then carefully file the edges. If you cannot cut your own nails, a podiatrist can assist.
