Tips for Cold, Dry, or Sweaty Feet

Cold Feet
Wear socks to keep feet warm instead of using hot water bottles, heating pads, or electric blankets that could burn your feet without you noticing. Try SmartKnit® X-STATIC seamless diabetic socks. They’re thermodynamic, which means they are warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Dry, Scaly or Flaky Skin
After washing and drying feet well, rub on a thick moisturizer. Take care not to get lotion between your toes because extra moisture can lead to infection. There are oxygenated lotions formulated for diabetics on the market. You might want to try GeLuscious® Gel Booties. These booties have a gel inside that works to moisturize your feet every time you put them on.

Sweaty Feet
Wear socks woven with a wicking fiber such as DuPont CoolMax® that draws moisture away from your skin. You may want to try SmartKnit® Seamless Diabetic Socks made with CoolMax® Cotton or wool retain moisture against your foot, both types of fibers become compressed and abrasive, and lose their shape easily- all potential problems for the diabetic foot susceptible to infection and ulcers.
