Happy Feet 101

People seldom pay attention to their feet unless they hurt. Given all that the feet do for us in getting us around, keeping us upright, and providing independence, it would behoove us to give them some loving attention. If we do not do this, the feet are bound to endure problems, ranging from bad odor to painful foot afflictions. Foot care tips to keep the feet happy and healthy include washing, drying, and moisturizing the feet each day, cutting toenails straight across and rounding edges with a nail file, wearing shoes that fit well, checking the feet regularly for abnormalities, and even getting a pampering foot massage and pedicure periodically. If your feet are tired, a good soak and rest will help. If you want to learn more about how to take care of your feet so that they serve you well across your lifetime, make an appointment with a podiatrist who can provide routine foot exams and additional foot care tips.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact Dr. Joshua David Scoll from Pennsylvania. 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.
