- Check your feet daily. Look for any odd spots, cuts, swelling, or bruises, and use a mirror to check the soles and between toes.
- Keep toenails neatly trimmed, and cuticles pushed back. Consider having stubborn corns or callouses removed.
- Wear comfortable, properly-fitting shoes and socks. Discuss with your doctor whether you need special orthotic shoes, or maybe even compression socks to help with circulation.
- Wash your feet daily, and keep them moisturized. Heels are particularly prone to dry, cracked skin.
- Exercise your feet to keep the blood flowing. Wiggle toes and perform ankle rotations throughout the day, especially when seated for long periods of time.
