Warm Weather Woes

As the weather gets warmer, you may start to notice an increase in "sweaty feet". In addition to being uncomfortable, sweaty feet may also have lasting effects. Left untreated, this condition may cause you to be more prone to athlete's foot and fungal toenails.       

Athlete's foot may present as an itchy, red, bumpy, scaly, very dry skin or a wet rash on the bottom of your feet or between your toes. Toenail fungus, which can affect some or all of your toenails, makes the nails thick, discolored, brittle and oftentimes "smelly". These problems can be prevented by keeping your feet dry and clean. Changing your socks every day at lunchtime, practicing proper foot hygiene and making sure your feet are thoroughly dry after a shower will help, as fungus is better suited to grow in moist environments. Using powder before putting your socks on can also help keep your feet dry.

Should you experience any of the aforementioned symptoms, call Country Foot Care! We can supply antifungal creams, powder and expert care to alleviate your symptoms so you can enjoy the summer.

Two of the most common causes for heel pain are plantar fasciitis, with the pain being felt under your heels, and Achilles tendinitis, with the pain occurring at the back of your heels.

How to effectively switch from a treadmill to the great outdoors

Even though it's great for the heart and lungs and it feels phenomenal, running takes a heavy toll on our bodies. Our feet are especially vulnerable, as they are the foundation on which we stand. Because foot injuries are common among runners, you need to take precautions whenever you run, such as wearing cushioned, well fitting running shoes and stretching before you run. Now that spring is here, many runners will transition from running indoors either on a track or a treadmill to running on pavement. There is a common misconception that you are less likely to sustain a foot injury running on a treadmill than when you run on pavement. The truth is that either surface can cause pain and injury if you do not take the proper "steps" to avoid problems.
