Sum­mer foot care

Geraldton Guardian - - Healthy You -

The Foot Pod Po­di­a­try Clinic’s Rachel Tim­mins of­fers her top tips for good foot care dur­ing the sum­mer months:

• Make sure that when you are in com­mu­nal ar­eas such as the beach you wear footwear. This will help stop in­fec­tions and the spread of warts.

• En­sure reg­u­lar care of hard skin. Go to your po­di­a­trist reg­u­larly and use a good heel balm, such as Eu­lac­tol Heel Balm Gold.

• If you have any corns or cal­luses, see a po­di­a­trist for treat­ment.

• If you ex­pe­ri­ence any foot pain, don’t leave it be­cause foot pain will of­ten get worse if left un­treated. See your po­di­a­trist.
