Health Tip: Take Care of Your Feet

- Proper foot care can help keep feet healthy and pain free.

Here are some suggestions, courtesy of the University of Michigan Health System:

  • Inspect feet regularly for cuts, blisters, calluses, sores or redness.
  • Keep feet clean and nails well-trimmed, and change socks frequently.
  • To prevent sweaty feet, sprinkle them with powder.
  • Wear properly fitting, comfortable shoes.
  • Wear shoes or sandals when in damp, warm area, such as in a locker room or near a pool.
  • Alternate shoes you wear each day to give them a chance to air out.
  • Don't use someone else's towels to wipe or dry your feet.
  • Use cotton socks while exercising or playing sports.
