How can I avoid frostbite this winter?

Frostbite can easily become a serious injury that causes permanent damage to your feet, so preventing it before it happens is the best way to protect your toes this winter. Fortunately, avoiding it can be as simple as wearing appropriate winter clothes and paying attention to your body. Layer warm, loose clothing when you go outside to keep air pockets close to your body. Wear multiple socks on each foot—especially thicker wool socks over thinner ones. Also, keep your feet dry while you are out in the cold. Waterproof winter boots and socks that wick moisture away from your feet are helpful for this.
Check your feet every hour that you are outside. If you notice they are feeling cold or numb, go inside as soon as you can and begin to warm them. Don’t ignore visible signs of frostbite on your feet, either. If you notice your skin seems hardened, extremely cold, or discolored, seek immediate medical attention. Don’t wait and risk real damage to your feet. For an appointment or more information, contact Foot & Ankle Associates by visiting the contact webpage or by calling (888) 784-5335.
