How do you look after your feet when you can’t visit the clinic?
Whilst our foot health clinics are closed during this period of lockdown, we have prepared a few tips to help you keep your feet healthy at home.
Good foot care is essential all year round, but especially for those with diabetes or other health conditions. Taking care of your skin, circulation and overall condition of your feet will ensure that you are able to move about free from discomfort.
Simple self-care measures include:
Always check your feet every day, looking for any new blisters, wounds, or splits between the toes. Contact us if there is anything red, hot or open sores.
Clean and dress any cuts, scratches or wounds.
Always wear footwear even indoors.
Always wear shoes that fit properly, feel how they fit with your hand.
Never sit with your feet too close to a fire.
Use a moisturising cream everyday, but avoid between your toes.
