The management of foot pain varies. There are many conditions that can affect your feet. If you are generally healthy, proper shoes and over-the-counter foot products are usually all you need for most foot problems. Seek professional care if the problem persists or gets worse.
If you have diabetes, you need to take extra care of your feet on a daily basis. Many lower limb amputations in the United States are done on people with diabetes. Most of them can be prevented with proper foot care.
