Why People May Hide Their Feet

Many people often neglect the care of their feet during the winter months. This may lead to reluctance in purchasing summer shoes, and having exposed feet at the beach or at the pool. There are simple everyday foot care practices that can alleviate the need to hide the feet. These include washing and drying the feet daily, followed by using a good moisturizer. Additionally, it is beneficial to properly have the nails trimmed regularly by cutting them at an angle. This may help to reduce the risk of developing an ingrown toenail. The feet will generally feel good when the correct size shoes are worn, which is determined by properly measuring the feet. It is suggested to keep the feet as dry as possible, which may help to prevent a fungal infection from starting. If you would like more information about the importance of and how to practice an effective foot care routine, it is suggested that you consult with a podiatrist who can answer any questions you may have.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact one of our podiatrists from Harlis Family Foot and Ankle. Our doctors 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.
