As winter approaches, our feet need more care than usual. Here are some Podiatrist tips about keeping your feet healthy.
- Check the bottom of your feet for any cuts or abrasions. You want to make sure there is no portal of entry for any fungi or bacteria to enter into your body.
- Check between the toes, especially between the 4th and 5th toes, which is a common area for athlete's feet to develop.
- Check your toenails. Are they thick? Are they smelly? Are they discolored? These could all indicate a fungal nail infection.
