Prettying Up Your Pigs
Those little piggies and the rest of your feet can suffer from dry skin, cracking and a variety of other problems. When your feet feel rough and dry, you may be hesitant to wear sandals or you may find socks uncomfortable to wear. Foot creams can help restore moisture to the skin to alleviate symptoms of dryness. You can also find exfoliating treatments, tools like files to gently remove dead skin and soften rough spots.
Addressing Corns, Calluses, Blisters and Bunions
As you walk, your shoes can rub against your feet, causing changes in the skin. Corns form on the toes due to friction, while calluses can develop on the balls and sides of your feet. Bunions are a change in the direction of your big toe with a prominent bump on its side that often occurs due to narrow shoes. Blisters are bubbles of skin or open sores on the heels or other parts of the feet. A number of solutions are available for these various problems caused by friction, including bandages and other protective items to cushion the feet. There are also medicated pads, creams, lotions and files that are made for one or more common foot care problems.
Dealing with Warts
Warts are growths that occur not from friction but due to a virus. Plantar warts appear on the bottoms of the feet and may look like calluses with black dots. In some cases, over-the-counter medications can successfully eliminate warts. These products typically contain ingredients like salicylic acid that causes cells in the area of the wart to shed.
Minimizing Foot Odor
Foot odor can leave you feeling embarrassed about taking off your shoes and when severe, can be detectable even when you're wearing footwear. Odor typically develops because of the presence of bacteria that form when your feet sweat inside of socks and shoes. You can find a number of products from powders, sprays and insoles to address odors. These foot care products help to reduce bacteria or absorb moisture to keep the feet smelling fresh.
Fighting Fungus of the Feet
Athlete's foot is a common fungal infection that occurs on the feet. Mild to moderate cases of athlete's foot can often be addressed with over-the-counter products that contain ingredients to kill fungus. If you suspect you have athlete's foot, you should get a diagnosis from your doctor before trying to address symptoms with over-the-counter foot care products.
While many foot care problems can be dealt with by using products that you'll find in the Walgreens Foot Care collection, you should still discuss any problem like a corn or a wart with your physician. Only use foot care products as instructed to ensure the safety of your feet.
