Daily foot care is an essential part of any comprehensive health plan and is even more vital for patients with diabetes, who are more prone to foot problems. Taking care of your feet requires very little effort if it is done on a daily basis; it is when individuals allow conditions to develop that care becomes more difficult. The feet should be inspected regularly to ensure that no blisters, cuts, swelling or redness is progressing without proper treatment. Washing should become a common practice. Use lukewarm water on the feet and ankles and then dry the skin thoroughly to prevent conditions that arise from excess moisture. Footwear needs to suit your arch type and lifestyle. In order to find shoes and socks that provide the support and stability needed for your daily needs, contact our Houston office at 888-784-5335.
Foot conditions can develop slowly over time. Without proper care and attention, medical problems can grow without notice and quickly turn into more serious complications. To learn what you can do for your unique feet on a daily basis, schedule an appointment online with Dr. Marco Vargas.
