Foot care Teaching 647

Patient was instructed about the feet care: always wear shoes or slippers. Always wear socks with the shoes, since leather, plastics, and manmade shoe materials can irritate your skin and quickly bring on blisters. While the Diabetic patient might prefer the look of hose, nylon knee-highs, or thin socks, may find that these doesn't give to the toes or heels enough protection. Wear thicker socks to pad the feet and cushion any calluses or sore spots. Further teaching is needed.
