ust as you wouldn’t go a day without brushing your teeth, you shouldn’t you go a day without taking care your feet.
Check them daily for cuts, sores, swelling, and infected toenails.
Give them a good cleaning in warm water, but avoid soaking them because that may dry them out.
Moisturize them every day with lotion, cream, or petroleum jelly. Don’t put moisturizer between
your toes. You want to keep the skin there dry to prevent infection.
Avoid wearing tight-fitting shoes. Your shoes shouldn’t hurt your feet.
Skip the flip-flops and flats. They don’t provide enough arch support.
Rotate your shoes so you’re not wearing the same pair every day.
Trim your toenails straight across with a nail clipper. Then use an emery board or nail file to smooth the corners, which will prevent the nail from growing into your skin.
