Proper Foot Care Tips

Some steps to take care of your feet:

  • Wash your feet daily with warm water and soap
  • Dry your feet well, especially between the toes
  • Keep your skin supple with a moisturizing lotion
  • Check your feet daily for blisters, cuts, sores, redness or swelling (use a mirror to check the bottom of your feet)
  • Notify your doctor right away if you find something wrong
  • Use an emery board gently to shape toenails even with the ends of the toes 
  • Wear socks or stockings without seams or bumps that are clean and soft and well-fitting
  • Keep your feet warm and dry
  • Wear shoes that fit well and do not rub toes or heels
  • Examine your shoes daily for cracks, pebbles, nails or anything that could hurt your feet
  • See your podiatrist (foot doctor) if you have a wound that is not healing

Also, make sure you don't:

  • Walk barefoot indoors or outdoors
  • Soak your feet without first checking the temperature of the water with your hand
  • Use a hot water bottle or heating pad on your feet
  • Put lotion between your toes
  • Use a knife or razor blade to cut your toenails or feet
  • Use chemicals or corn and callous removers yourself
  • Rip off a hangnail
  • Wear garters or other clothing that cut off circulation to your feet
  • Smoke
