How Do I Prevent Foot Pain?

How To Prevent Foot Pain
By Foot & Ankle Associates – Sugar Land  / Houston’s Favorite Podiatrist,
Dr. Marco Vargas

You can prevent foot pain by recognizing the need to take care of your feet. However, Dr. Marco Vargas has a few specifics:

  • Inspect your feet every day. Look for changes in toenails, cracked or peeling skin and any abnormal growths. Foot inspections are really important if you are suffering from diabetes.
  • Wash your feet daily and dry thoroughly. Bacteria breeds in moist environments and by drying your feet you can help eliminate that from happening. Also, don’t forget to dry in between your toes.
