Though it would seem that feet would strive being shielded from the elements during the colder months of the year, being cooped up for long periods of time has its disadvantages. The cold and damp weather outside mixed with the warmth and dryness inside, can lead to unhealthy feet unless proper precautions are taken. Moist and warm shoes are the perfect place for fungus to invade the nails and feet. Conversely, warm and dry heat dehydrates the heels, causing painful cracks. Improper footwear can lead to ingrown nails and add to the susceptibility of contracting foot fungus. Poor footing on slippery surfaces can lead to sprained or broken ankles. With some tender loving care, the correct knowledge, and your podiatrist on call, your feet can survive these cold months and be ready to enjoy freedom when summer arrives.


Make sure your shoes or boots fit properly. If they are too tight they can cause ingrown toenails or blisters. If they aren't too tight in your toe region but are still causing blisters, try using pads to create a barrier between your foot and the shoe or boot. If you do get a blister, apply antiseptic cream and bandages. If the blister doesn't heal in a timely manner, consult your podiatrist right away.
