2. Tips on Foot Care

Pay particular attention to your feet. Examine them everyday including the area between the toes. Use mild soap when you give them a daily wash and then dry them thoroughly. Apply lotion if the skin is very dry but not between the toes.

  • When you examine your feet, watch for red, swollen and cuts in the skin. Cold areas may mean poor circulation while warm areas may mean infection.
  • Avoid ingrown toenails so follow the curve of the toe when you cut them.
  • Avoid going barefoot even when swimming. Swimmers' shoes are available.
  • Wear shoes that fit well and are comfortable. Leather shoes will help feet get the air circulation to stay healthy.
  • Have the podiatrist treat problems with the feet; don't do them yourself.
  • There are shoe specialists who will help make sure the shoes you buy really are a good fit since with lost sensation, you may not be able to make the correct decision.
  • Get early treatment for any foot problems.

What are the possible foot problems that you have to get early treatment for?

  • When you step on a nail and get a puncture wound
  • When you have ulcer or open sore
  • When there is a blister or cut that does not easily heal
  • When a toe is tender and red
  • When the blister or cut is infected
  • When you feel a change in pain, burning, tingling and numbness

3. A Success Quotation of the Month We chose the following success quotation for this month because we feel we are a small group of people who are trying to help one another.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed people can change the world: indeed it's the only thing that ever has!" Margaret Meade

4. Trivia: Do You Know If This Is True?
