How Much Do You Know About Foot Health?

Most people would agree that it's no small problem when their feet ache. Yet few other parts of the body are more neglected in terms of basic personal care. And major foot problems and chronic pain often go ignored. Learning about foot care can help you recognize when to see a doctor for treatment.

1. You should inspect your feet regularly.
2. Trim your toenails to follow the curve of your toe.
3. For people who don't have circulation problems, it's safe to use over-the-counter remedies for foot ailments such as corns or warts.
4. Having a pedicure can treat foot problems.
5. You shouldn't wear the same pair of shoes for two or more days in a row.
6. High heels frequently cause foot problems in women.
7. Years of wearing narrow shoes that squeeze the toes together can cause bunions.
