Hair on the Toes

Tuesday, 27 September 2022 00:00

Taking care of the feet ought to be an essential component of anyone’s daily or weekly self-care routine. Sometimes, if someone is caring for and pampering their feet, they might notice hairs growing on the toes, especially the big toe. Although this might seem alarming and unsightly, hair on the toes does not indicate anything problematic in many cases. If anything, hair on the toes indicates good blood circulation. If you do not want hair on your toes, you might safely remove the hairs by using a standard shower razor and shaving gel. Importantly, if you feel as though the hair on your toes is more than normal (especially if you have a kind of adrenal or ovarian disorder), you might consider seeking out medical attention. Contact a podiatrist today to learn more about hair on the toes.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact one of our podiatrists from Community Podiatry Group. Our doctors can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Everyday Foot Care

Often, people take care of their bodies, face and hair more so than they do for their feet. But the feet are a very important aspect of our bodies, and one that we should pay more attention to. Without our feet, we would not be able to perform most daily tasks.

It is best to check your feet regularly to make sure there are no new bruises or cuts that you may not have noticed before. For dry feet, moisturizer can easily be a remedy and can be applied as often as necessary to the affected areas. Wearing shoes that fit well can also help you maintain good foot health, as well as making it easier to walk and do daily activities without the stress or pain of ill-fitting shoes, high heels, or even flip flops. Wearing clean socks with closed shoes is important to ensure that sweat and bacteria do not accumulate within the shoe. Clean socks help to prevent Athlete’s foot, fungi problems, bad odors, and can absorb sweat.
