Tips for Managing Your Feet

toenail fungus7If you have smelly feet, that may be indicative of excessive bacteria, as well as the need for proper management of your feet. Adjusting your diet and eating healthier is the best choice for addressing excessive sweating and smell in your feet. Check your footwear and make sure they are comfortable. Avoid wearing the same pair for long periods of time, especially without socks. Clean your feet regularly, use a spray, and soak them with home remedies.

Every day foot care is very important, especially for those that are lacking the proper foot care resources. For more information about everyday foot care, contact The Podiatry Care Center from Dr. Rhonda Nelson. Our doctor will treat your foot and ankle needs.

Every Day 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. After all, 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 example.

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.

Also, 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.
