Summer Feet = Healthy Feet

Posted: May 15, 2009

Summertime means bare feet. At the beach, at the pool or just walking in sandals, it’s the season where feet get to breathe. But how do you keep your clients' feet healthy as they expose them to dangers, such as athlete’s foot and other maladies that can make feet itch, swell or just look ugly?

Maureen Jennings, MD, podiatrist, says healthy feet are always important, but even more so during the summer. “It’s not enough just to keep your feet clean,” said Dr Jennings. “A lot of people tend to ignore their feet, and as a result they expose them to all kinds of infections and problems that can cause them to be both unhealthy and unsightly. The last thing you want during the summer is to be forced to hide your feet because they’re red, itchy or inflamed. And let’s face it guys, wearing socks with sandals is one quick way to make the ‘loser’s list’ with the ladies.”

Jennings says there are 11 simple rules to quote to your clients for healthy, happy feet.
