Tips to Keep Your Feet Healthy During Men’s Health Month
Written By MEHRU
Summer is men’s health season, and now that the warm weather is here, men are stepping out to enjoy all the activities that summer has to offer. It means a lot of wear and tears on your feet.
Here are 3 tips to ensure your feet stay healthy and strong this season.
CUT YOUR TOILETS!
Always clean your mowers first. You can use alcohol for this. The correct way to trim your toenails is by cutting the tension lengthwise and not too deep at the edges.
Be careful not to cut too much, this can lead to infection or an ingrown toenail. For sharp edges, it is best to use a nail file.
KEEP YOUR FOOD DRY
Be sure to dry your feet thoroughly after showering, especially between the toes.
Men’s feet tend to sweat a lot, so it’s a good idea to replace sweaty socks regularly with new ones.
Hot and humid places are breeding grounds for bacteria and fungi. This can lead to an athlete’s foot or other infections.
WEAR THE RIGHT SHOES
Proper footwear is important to keep the legs of the feet properly aligned.
If your shoes do not fit you, a problem that can occur is heel pain. This happens when there is too much weight and stress on the heel.
Heel pain or plantar fasciitis has several treatments. Custom orthotic insoles are custom insoles that a podiatrist mold to the specific shape of your foot and can help relieve pain.

Always wear shoes that fit well
Shoes that don’t fit well can cause blisters that can lead to infections or other problems. Make sure to choose shoes that don’t irritate your feet. Wear shoes that adequately support your feet and ankles to ensure a safe walk.
A physical therapist can help make sure your shoes fit for regular wear or specific sports activities and recommend shoes or shoe inserts (orthotics) for proper support.
Get your feet wet at night
Keep your skin soft and healthy by hydrating it every night. This can help prevent itching or cracking. Avoid putting lotion between your toes.
Keep your blood sugar under control
According to the National Institutes of Health, diabetes can affect your feet. High blood sugar can cause nerve damage, which can result in loss of skin sensation.
Reduced blood flow can also make it harder for your feet to heal from an injury or resist infection.
Regular physical activity and proper nutrition are the keys to preventing type 2 diabetes and maintaining adequate blood sugar levels.
Whether you have diabetes or not, getting the recommended daily physical activity is important for preventing and managing many chronic conditions and diseases.
