Rainy Season Tips

  • Wash your feet when you are coming from outside as the moisture and humidity due to excessive exposure in rain water can give rise to fungal infections.


  • Keep your feet dry especially in between the toes because after taking bath or getting wet in rain we usually forget to clean the moisture, which is the prime cause of fungal and bacterial infections.


  • After scrubbing your feet with pumice stone, if your skin is feeling dry, it is best to use a moisture based cream. However, it is recommended never to apply cream in between the toes as the moisture content is high in between the web spaces.


  • Excessive sweating can also cause your feet to become wet so preferably you should use talcum powder before you put on your footwear. If there is a pungent smell in your feet, you could be having a fungal infection and it is time to visit a doctor.


  • Wear extra width and well cushioned footwear, which is made of natural material. Avoid wearing tight pointed and high heel footwear during rains. Open sandals or flip flops should be worn as it will allow the dirt to slip out if the footwear gets muddy or dirty. Moreover, sharing your footwear can also lead to different problems during monsoons.


  • Take extra care while trimming your toe nails, cut them straight and file the corners having sharp edges. Do not keep long nails as they accumulate dirt and dust. If you experience any skin damage during nail trim, use an antiseptic and antibiotic cream for few days.


  • Be cautious of your feet, if you are diabetic as they wounds take a longer time to heal. Avoid doing bathroom surgeries for corn and callosities instead you can use a pumice stone.


  • You can go for pedicure but the place should be clean and infection free. Diabetic patients should avoid experimenting with their feet.
