Winter is Here!

The winter is here and we need to protect our feet from the cold weather. Whether from the environment or a physical condition, the skin on our feet can become vulnerable levels of dryness. Some of the problems that can arise are dry skin making your feet dry and cracked, mostly in the soles where the most pressure is applied to. Calluses, which are hard thickened areas of skin which can form on the bottom of the foot and can also be found on the toes, can also start to form. Infections can also start to form especially for people with diabetes who are prone to foot infections from poor circulation and a loss of feeling. And last but not least, itchy feet which can derive from severe dryness. This can cause more scratching and rubbing that can only lead to further complications.
So come visit us and we will help you prevent foot problems as well as provide proper care for already occurring problems. Don’t suffer with dry winter foot problems any more!
