hello everyone and happy holidays to you all.
Lets keep this a safe holiday by taking care of our feet for the winter so we can enjoy the holidays and walk in the spirit of the season.
Every season has its own problems for our feet. But winter is the toughest for me!
Please, take care of your feet in the winter. this time of year many people wear double socks and their feet sweat. if this is the case for you, once you come in the house, take off the double socks and wash your feet and dry them very well. For those of us who tend to go out and wear shoes that are not boots, our feet get wet. This is not good either. Get into the habit of brining a extra pair of shoes and socks with you and changing into them to keep your feet dry. For those of us with poor circulation, do not go out and let your toes get cold. if your toes are hurting from cold, get your butt in the house and get those shoes off. Rub your toes and feet and get the circulation going and put on some warm socks and putt-putts.
make sure that if you have boots that are old they do not leak. Slurge a little if you have to and get your feet measured and buy some quality boots. if you will be wearing double socks, make sure you get measured with double socks. Dry feet tends to mean dry toe nails. Keep your nails trimmed and keep an eye on them for cracking.
Calasus may form so go to a doctor and learn how to properly remove them or file them.
I know I am forgeting something here, so if any one has another tip for winter care, add it so we can keep on walking. Socks are important too. Get socks that will absorb sweat and keep feet try.
