Most people are born with healthy feet, however, some of us eventually suffer some form of foot disorder in our lives. Children may start to show foot defects or discomfort as early as age two. Most adult feet disorders are caused by improper foot care. Here are a few of the more common
problems and some suggestions for treatment.

Athlete’s Foot – a fungus infection of the skin. It may begin with tiny blisters which then burst and dry up, causing the skin to flake, crack, itch and burn.
Treatment: Keep your feet clean and dry. Wear cotton socks to help absorb excess moisture and discourages fungal growth. Use an anti fungus powder or solution.
If sores don’t heal after one week, see your doctor.

Bunions – Swollen and tender areas caused by misaligned joints. Usually the big toe is affected and develops an overgrowth by the bone.
Treatment: Special cushions worn in the shoe can alleviate some of the pressure caused by bunions. Cortisone injections may help alleviate swelling.

Corn and calluses – Hard, thickened skin which usually causes a painful and burning sensation. Corns form on the top of toes above a centre joint or on the soles of your feet. Calluses form on the heel or ball of your foot.
Treatment: Wear properly fitted shoes to reduce the friction and pressure on the feet which causes corns and calluses. Occasionally, surgical removal is necessary.

Foot Cramps – Sudden, very painful cramps in the arch of the foot caused by strained muscles.
Treatment: Stretch the arch muscle and massage it until the cramp ends.

Foot Strain – Dull, pulsating ache in the arch due to fatigue or stress on the foot.
Treatment: Rest your feet, soak them in warm water and massage them. If the pain persists, seek medical attention.

Ingrown Toenail – Corners of the toenail cut into your skin and cause pain – especially when pressure is applied to the toe.
Treatment: Soak your toe in warm water and get early medical treatment to prevent infection. Your doctor may correct the problem surgically.

Onychomycosis (Toenail Fungus) – A fungus infection which grows under the toenail, causing thickening of the toenail.
Treatment: Firstly, see your doctor. Several types of anti-fungal medications are available.

Some foot problems are signs of more serious trouble. Seek medical attention if you suffer from chronic infection, foot or leg cramps, coldness or discoloration.

FOOT FILE:
Follow the below steps to get the best results from your Foot File:
Soak your feet for a couple of minutes, once done, ensure feet are dried thoroughly. Hold the foot from the ankle and start from the heels. Rub the foot file a little harder in a back and forth motion.
Move to the centre of the foot and rub the
foot file in circular motions here. Then move
back to the sides of the heels and rub them
in a back and forth motion.
• Now move to the toes and rub the outer
side of thumb and pinkie toe a little harder
in back and forth motions. Rub the toes in
small circular motions.
• Finally, rub the whole foot and clean the
excess dry skin with a towel.
With proper and regular use of pedicure heel foot files, you can improve the health of your feet.

Proper foot care also includes foot maintenance. Here are a few things you can do to keep your feet healthy and prevent problems.
• Keep your feet clean and dry – wash your feet, change your socks and air out your shoes to prevent fungus infections.
• Moisturise your feet after washing. During dry-skin winter months, you may want to moisturise several times a day. Nothing fancy is needed: basic lotions and creams are fine.

• Rest and relax your feet every day. Lie back and elevate your feet for a few minutes.
Give your feet a soothing massage with your fingers or roll your feet over a golf ball, tennis
ball or a rolling pin for a similar effect.

• Exercise your feet to maintain blood circulation. Walking is best. Try taking a brisk 30-
minute walks five to seven times a week.
• Check your feet regularly. Look for sores, cracked skin and redness. Don’t forget to inspect the areas between your toes.
• Our feet should not hurt—ever. Tight shoes can worsen bunions, distort toe shape and
cause painful foot growths. If you wear high heels, choose heels that are wide, stable and no higher than two inches. Toe boxes should be wide; pointed toes shouldn’t begin their narrowing shape until well past the ball of the foot. To protect your Achilles tendon from shortening, alternate heel heights regularly.
• Pregnancy, ageing and diabetes all affect your feet. Pregnant women need shoes with broad heels, arch support and good shock absorbency. Added pregnancy weight may cause your shoe size to change, so get your feet measured. Older women lose some of the cushioning fat on the balls of their feet;
Choose shoes that provide more shock protection. Diabetics can develop serious conditions related to the feet and lower legs. Check feet for any problems daily and see a paediatric physician at least annually.
• If you notice problems with your feet, get it treated right away so it does not get worse.
