The right technique, the right tools, and special care when called for, can keep your feet feeling great. However, it is important to recognize those circumstances when specialized care must be sought.

Under normal circumstances, begin with a self-indulging 10 minute soak. His will allow the nails to soften, and prevent splitting during the trimming process. Then, towel dry the foot, and you are ready to begin. Choose the right tool, clippers or nippers, depending on the thickness of the nail (more on that later). Make sure the instrument you are using is properly disinfected. Rubbing alcohol works well, and the tools should be disinfected both before and after use.

Start at the outer corner of the nail and trim the nail straight across. Do not angle the corners or round the nail. This could lead to ingrown toenails which can be very painful, and they could possibly become infected. Do not attempt to take one big cut and be done. A series of small snips is better. Afterwards, use a nail file. File in one direction, as opposed to a back and forth motion. Remember to be conservative. Do not cut the nail too short. This also could lead to ingrown toenails.

It is best not to cut the cuticle. Rather, purchase orange sticks (found at drug stores, beauty supply houses and in the health and beauty aid sections at general merchandisers). Use the stick to nudge the cuticle back out of the way. This will keep the nail looking great. There is no specific time line for cutting toenails. Do it when needed, to keep feet comfortable.

There are some instances when special care is required. If you are Diabetic, or have thickened toenails due to injury or fungus, remember to use appropriate cautions, as further damage can result in possible infection. If you require specialized care, and live in the Sugarland area, call Dr. Vargas at 281-397-3487, or schedule an appointment online. We will be glad to help you reach your own comfort zone.
