What are some basic steps I can take to ensure the health of my feet?

Text Size:

Never walk with bare feet or with just socks on, especially if your feet are numb, to reduce the risk of foot injury. Also, don’t soak your feet unless you’re instructed to do so; this can dry out the skin and increase the risk of injury and infection. Do not use commercial products to remove corns and calluses, strong antiseptics, or heating pads on your feet. All can cause irritation that increases the risk of foot complications.
