- Wash your feet every day in warm soapy water (don't soak them, as this might destroy the natural oils) and dry them thoroughly, especially between the toes.
- If your skin is dry, apply moisturising cream all over the foot, other than between the toes.
- Remove hard skin gently with a pumice stone, but avoid boney areas or joints. If the hard skin is painful, consult a registered chiropodist/podiatrist.
- Trim your toe nails regularly, using nail clippers. Cut straight across, not too short, and not down at the corners as this can lead to in-growing nails.
- Keep your feet warm, and exercise to improve your circulation.
- Always wear the right shoe for the job.
- Seek prompt treatment for burns, cuts and breaks in the skin, and for any usual changes in colour or temperature. This is particularly important if you have diabetes.
- If your feet hurt, something is wrong!
