Foot Health Tips

            ♦   Walking is the best exercise for your feet.

            ♦   A shoe with a firm sole and soft upper is best for daily activities.

            ♦   Socks or stockings should be of the correct size and preferably free of seams.

            ♦   Do not wear constricting garters or tie your stockings in knots.

            ♦   Never cut corns and calluses with a razor, pocket knife, or other such instrument.

            ♦   Bathe your feet daily in lukewarm (not hot) water, using mild soap.  Dry throughly and apply                                    moisture lotion to help keep feet from getting dry and cracked.

                ♦   Trim or file your toenails straight across

            ♦   Inspect your feet every day or have someone do this for you. 

             ♦   If you notice any redness, swelling, cracks in the skin, or sores, consult your podiatrist.
