Using Special Diabetic Foot Cream Can Help Ease Diabetic Foot Problems
 
Diabetic foot cream is an excellent solution to diabetes related foot problems. Diabetes, a systemic disease resulting in an elevated blood sugar level, affects approximately 16 million Americans. Many complications are associated with diabetes, primarily vascular and neurological. But diabetes can also result in many diabetic foot problems, so sufferers need special medication like a diabetic foot cream.
 
A Diabetic Foot Cream Can Help Relieve Diabetic Foot Problems
 
A diabetic foot cream can be used to alleviate common symptoms associated with diabetic foot problems. You can use a diabetic foot cream to help with problems like itchy or dry skin. Diabetic foot creams help break down hardened, callused skin and eliminate cracks and fissures, so whenever you need foot pain relief, use a diabetic foot cream.

Remember: Do no use a diabetic foot cream between your toes.

 

What to Do: The Best Ways to Find Relief from Diabetic Foot Problems
 
In addition to using a diabetic foot cream, here are some helpful tips for relieving pain associated with a diabetic foot problem:

     DO's
  • Inspect your feet daily for blisters, bleeding and lesions between the toes. Use a mirror to examine the bottoms of your feet as well
  • Wear therapeutic footwear, including specially made diabetes socks, slippers, insoles, orthotics and other footwear for the diabetes foot.
  • Wear diabetic footwear that fits well, protects your feet and has conforming, removable insoles.
  • Wear seamless diabetes socks stockings to keep moisture away from the diabetes foot.
  • Skin care for the diabetes foot is important! Wash your feet daily with warm, soapy water and dry them thoroughly, especially between the toes. Combine with a diabetic foot cream for a great daily regimen to keep feet healthy.
  • Trim your toenails carefully, straight across, and do not gouge into the corners.

     DONT's
  • Don’t excessively soak your diabetes foot… especially in hot water.
  • Don’t use hot water bottles or heating pads on your feet.
  • Don’t use acids or chemical corn removers on your diabetes foot.
  • Don’t perform “bathroom surgery” on corns, calluses or ingrown toenails.
  • Don’t smoke.
  • Do not use a normal skin cream – Use a diabetic foot cream made just for your condition.
See your podiatrist on a regular basis, and contact one to find out which type of diabetic foot cream is right for you.
