Put Your Best Foot Forward
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     You will walk many miles on your feet in your lifetime. You need to take good care of them.
 
2     First of all, you need to keep them clean. Foot odor is a problem many people have. Keeping your feet clean will help keep the odor down. You can wash them during your daily shower. Use a mild soap and a clean washcloth. Make sure to wash between your toes. Rinse your feet completely. Then make sure you dry them thoroughly. It is important to dry between your toes, also.
 
3     Next, keep your toenails trimmed neatly. Don't cut them too short. Most doctors recommend that you cut them straight across. This will prevent ingrown toenails. This happens when the sharp edge of your toenail grows into the skin on your toe. Ingrown toenails are very painful. They can also become infected. Don't let this happen to you. When you are in a public bathroom or locker room, you should always wear flip-flops or something like them on your feet. This will help prevent athlete's foot. So will keeping your feet clean and drying them well, even between the toes, after washing them. Athlete's foot is a fungus infection. It usually grows between your toes. The skin becomes red and sore. If you do get athlete's foot, there are many sprays and powders that will help it. You can buy them at a pharmacy or at many stores that sell health supplies.
