Keep Feet Healthy

Your feet have a important responsibility, so treat them right to help keep them healthy. The American Podiatric Medical Association offers these suggestions for taking care of your tootsies:

  • Make sure your shoes fit properly and comfortably; those that have a soft upper area and a sturdy sole are best.
  • Go shoe shopping later in the day, when feet are more enlarged than in the morning.
  • Walking is a huge form of exercise for your feet.
  • Make sure stockings and pantyhose fit correctly, and choose those without seams.
  • Don't try to cut off corns or calluses on your own; see a podiatrist for treatment.
  • Keep toenails trimmed in a straight line.
  • Scrub your feet each day in hot water and gentle soap, and give them a careful once-over to look for foot problems.
