Proper wound care is vital to foot health, especially for those with diabetes. Wounds, if left untreated, can lead to infection and amputation.

Tips to prevent wounds:

It is vital to check your feet daily for any issues with your feet, such as cuts, scrapes or discoloration. Wash your feet with soap and water and dry your feet well to keep your feet from retaining once you put on your socks and shoes. It’s also wise to use lotion or other moisturizer on your feet to prevent skin from drying and cracking. If foot or nail fungus is evident, use an antifungal cream to reduce the risk of infection. Wear shoes that fit properly, give your feet and ankles support and allow your feet to breathe properly. Finally, visit a podiatrist regularly for preventative treatment and care of your feet.
