Properly Cut Your Toenails
Be sure to cut your nails straight across and don’t cut close to the skin. We suggest not rounding your toenails as this often causes ingrown toenails.
Don’t Cover Up “Ugly” Toenails
Sometimes it is easy to want to cover a crumbly, infected, or discolored toenail with nail polish. However, this just amplifies the damage. It is best to keep it uncovered and get the treatment you need right away. Some of these problems will only get worse the longer you ignore them. Don’t let that happen to you!
What to Look Out For
When it comes to examining and being aware of your feet, there are some common things that you shouldn’t ignore. These include the following:
- Discoloration. There are a variety of ailments and fungal infections that turn the skin of your feet a yellow, brown, or green tint. If you see something like this, it’s a good idea to get it checked out.
- Unnatural Bumps. When your feet are in distress, caused by uncomfortable shoes or improper care, bumps start to form. They may come up slowly, but it is important to notice when this happens. These may include bunion, which should be treated by a specialist.
- Dry or Peeling Skin. If you have dry skin and lotion won’t help, you may have athlete’s foot or another ailment. To get proper treatment is important to eliminate this problem.
