General footcare

  • Keep feet clean and dry every day

  • Check feet over daily

  • Make sure footwear has 1cm from longest toe to end of the shoe

  • Cut nails straight across

  • Use foot cream regularly but never between the toes

  • If you get foot pain, make an appointment with a podiatrist

 

 

In the case of emergency or sore feet:

  • Soak feet in salt water or sodium bicarbonate and water

  • Cover any sore areas with a plaster

  • If feet remain painful, visit a podiatrist; don't leave it hoping it will get better on its own - it rarely does
