It’s the middle of winter, how are your feet?

January 28, 2022

It’s a good time of year to be extra diligent about checking your feet daily for cuts, sores or areas of warmth or redness.

The changes in temperature in the colder months can often dry our skin.

Keeping your feet cleaned and moisturized (not between your toes, though) to prevent dryness and cracking is a good practice to maintain.

Are your winter boots warm and dry enough? Signs of frostbite include whitish or bluish-gray skin, along with possible blisters and numbness. Call your doctor or nurse practitioner immediately if you’re showing any of these symptoms.
