Everyday Foot Care Is Often Overlooked

Tuesday, 14 March 2023 00:00

The feet are the foundation of the body and carry all our weight. While the feet are one of the most important parts of the body to provide proper care for, they are often overlooked. Everyday foot care begins with washing and drying the feet, followed by applying a good moisturizer. It is important to trim the toenails correctly and this may help to prevent an ingrown toenail from developing. Some patients enjoy soaking their feet in Epsom salt. Soaking the feet can help to exfoliate dead skin, which may aid in the prevention of cracked heels. Additionally, many people avoid taking excessively hot showers to help maintain elasticity in the skin. Foot creams can be beneficial at night to protect the heels and moisturize the skin while sleeping. If you would like more information about effective everyday foot care routines, it is suggested that you speak with a podiatrist. 

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact Howard Kimmel, DPM from Buckeye Foot Care. Our doctor 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.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact one of our offices located in Beachwood, Brook Park, and Willoughby, OH . We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot and ankle needs.
