During Foot Health Month, Jen Curley, BSN, RN, CFCN (Certified Foot Care Nurse) encourages you to care for your feet by:
- Looking for red spots, cuts, swelling and blisters on your feet and between your toes every day. If you can’t see or reach them, ask for help or use a mirror. Wearing white socks can help you detect any drainage that may not be seen on dark socks.
- Carefully washing and drying your feet daily. Soaking is not recommended.
- Keeping your feet moisturized. Dry skin can lead to cracks, which can lead to infection. Moisturizing between your toes is not recommended.
- Working with your healthcare provider, if you’re diabetic, to manage your blood sugar.
