Spring Break is fast approaching, and with that comes exciting getaways to tropical locations. We want to make sure that you are putting both foot safety and fun at the top of your vacation list. Here are some tips to protect your feet while you are at the beach.

Even if you’re walking in sand you should always wear your shoes. This is the best way to avoid puncture wounds. If you happen to receive a cut or puncture on your foot, refrain from getting in the water until the wound has closed to prevent infection. Don’t forget to put sunscreen on your feet (tops and bottoms). Wear supportive shoes if you are playing a beach sport like football or volleyball, to protect your feet from sprains or fractures. If you receive a jellyfish sting, wash it out with vinegar and water, and see a doctor if redness and pain continue after a few days.

If you happen to have diabetes foot safety is even more important. Never go anywhere without your shoes and perhaps even a backup pair. If you suffer from diabetic neuropathy, it’s possible that you might walk on burning pavement or step on a piece of broken glass and not feel a thing, so protecting your toes should be your number one priority. Keep your feet clean during your vacation. Every day you should wash your feet to get rid of any sand or shells that may have gotten stuck to them. A good way to get off all the sand is by using baby powder. It also gets rid of moisture so you don’t contract athlete’s foot.

If you want more ideas for how to keep your feet safe on vacation, or would like to schedule an appointment to fix a foot problem, call Dr. Marco Vargas and Dr. Joyce Lee at 888-784-5335 or schedule one online. Putting your safety first doesn’t mean sacrificing fun, but we want your feet to stay healthy and whole.
