As an avid worker you are on your feet all the time. Even the most sedentary jobs require that we use our feet to get around in the interim. The use of our feet at the workplace creates lasting wear and tear, which can cause larger problems such as bunions, plantar fasciitis, and other pain. Although most of us have to work, we do not have to suffer from painful feet. Instead, we can be proactive and care for them even while at the workplace.

One of the most important steps you can take for caring for your working feet is to be sure to wash them every day. Washing and drying them thoroughly can help prevent warts, athlete’s foot and other conditions.

Working feet should also have regular toenail maintenance. When cutting your toenails, be sure to cut the nail straight across. Cutting the nail at an angle or in a curved shape could cause ingrown toenails.

Also, be sure to change your socks daily. If you are working in a job that makes your feet very sweaty or wet, it is also important to change your socks during the work day. This will make it so you can prevent athlete’s feet, chilblains, or smelly feet.

Have sweaty feet at work? There are tips for that too!

  • When selecting a pair of shoes for work, try picking shoes that are made from leather or canvas. These shoes are better at preventing and wicking away moisture. Synthetic materials tend to trap moisture in the shoes and your feet.
  • Switch your shoes during work. Make sure to bring a spare pair with you, and when your feet start to get very moist, swap them, along with your socks, for a new fresh pair.
  • Use foot powder. Foot powder helps to absorb excess moisture and can help prevent smelly feet, calluses, corns, and even athlete’s feet.

Are you still having problems even with these foot care tips and tricks? Do your feet ache, smell, or seem out of shape?
