How to take care of your feet: Taking care of your feet is well worth a couple of minutes a day. One out of every five hospital admissions in North America had its start in the feet of a person with diabetes. 1. Wash your feet every day in warm - not hot - water. Let them air dry or pat dry with a soft trowel. 2. Inspect each foot carefully after washing. Look for any sores, cracks, blisters, tiny wounds, bruises, rashes, swelling, etc. If any such condition does not improve, gets worse, or if new conditions arise, call your doctor. 3. Apply DiabetiDerm Foot Rejuvenating Cream immediately after drying. Rub gently into callouses, cracks, and any rough or irritated areas. DiabetiDerm will help keep your feet smooth, soft and healthy. It's the best friend your feet ever had.
