Foot Care

Foot Care

First of all, foot care is about treating the disease, years of wear and tear, ill-fitting or poorly designed shoes, poor circulation to the feet, or improperly trimmed toenails cause many common foot problems.
Fungal and bacterial conditions — including athlete’s foot — occur because the feet are usually enclosed in a dark, damp and warm environment. These infections cause redness, blisters, peeling, and itching. In addition, if not treated promptly, an infection may become chronic and difficult to cure. Therefore to prevent these conditions, keep the feet — especially the area between the toes — clean and dry and expose the feet to air whenever possible. If you are prone to fungal infections, you may want to dust your feet daily with a fungicidal powder.
Also, dry skin can cause itching and burning feet. Consequently use a mild soap sparingly and a body lotion on your legs and feet every day. The best moisturizers contain petroleum jelly or lanolin. Be cautious about adding oils to bath water since they can make the feet and bathtub very slippery.
