Four Tips for Healthy Feet:

1. Happy feet start with good hygiene. Make sure to drink plenty of
water, take routine showers to clean your feet, and let your feet get
some fresh air every now and then.

2. Don’t hide ugly or cracked nails with polish. If your nails are
cracked or have fungus on them, see a doctor to help fix this problem
instead of masking it with polish. In fact, nail polish can make the
problem worse so it’s best to seek medical help.

3. Wear shoes that fit properly. If shoes are too small for your
feet, it can cause blisters, chronic pain, or even bunions overtime so
wear shoes that feet properly for the size of your feet.

4. See a doctor when pain, redness, swelling, or discoloration
persists. If you don’t have a doctor, call the professionals at Bond
Clinic <http://www.bondclinic.com/category/physicians/cardiology/> .
