Foot care tips

Your feet take many steps throughout your life.  Here are a few tips on how to care for your feet and keep them in good shape:

  • Wash and dry feet thoroughly on a daily basis. Do not forget to dry between the toes.
  • Cut toenails straight across - never round them off.
  • If you find it beneficial, use foot cream to moisturise the skin, but do not apply between toes as this can cause the skin to macerate and promote growth of fungi and bacteria.
  • Shoes should be neither too tight nor too loose. They should fit comfortably with no rubbing or irritation.
  • When shopping for shoes, do so later in the day when feet have settled and swelled to their maximum size.
  • Always wear socks, as socks are designed to absorb perspiration, which can lead to an array of foot disorders.
  • Never ignore foot pain, as it may be a sign of a potentially serious problem or condition.
  • Do not use over-the-counter remedies to treat corns and calluses. These conditions require professional attention.
