Foot problems are one of the most common and annoying issues people deal with on a daily basis. If left untreated, they often get worse. That’s why it’s important to take care of your feet now, before summer hits. Flip flop season is just around the corner, so it’s the perfect time to start treating any foot issues you may have.
Here are some of the best foot care tips that we can give you
Keep your toenails trimmed short and straight across to avoid discomfort and infection. Use a pair of nail clippers to cut them evenly. Do not round off the corners, as this makes it much easier for them to catch and grow into your skin.
If you have rough, dry heels, you’re not alone. Many people suffer from this problem. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to help. You can use an emery board or foot file to exfoliate the dead skin on your heels. This will help them look and feel better. You can also apply foot cream to take care of the pain, redness, and dryness that often accompanies cracked heels. Alternatively, you can have a professional podiatrist like ourselves at City Chiropody do this for you for a perfect finish.
Athlete’s foot is a fungus that thrives in warm, moist environments, like between your toes. It’s highly contagious and can spread if left untreated. That’s why it’s important to keep your feet clean by wearing clean shoes and socks, avoiding sharing textiles, and treating your feet after showering.
Verrucas are a common, painful skin condition. SWIFT verruca treatment eliminates them quickly and prevents them from spreading to other parts of the body. Our treatment is safe for family members who may also contract the condition.
Bamboo and hemp socks are the perfect way to keep your feet healthy. Bamboo fibres are antibacterial and help keep away moisture and bacteria, while hemp fibres are naturally antibacterial and anti-fungal.
Athletic shoes are essential for a variety of activities. They provide comfort and safety for running, hiking, and playing sports. It is essential to have the correct type of shoe for the activity. For example, running shoes are designed for long periods of use and provide comfort.
