DID YOU KNOW.................

FOOT  FACTS:

  Proper trimming of toe nails is important in preventing ingrown nails from occuring.  Using a straight edged clipper trim your toenails straight across, no rounded corners.  File the nail edge with a nail file to smooth any rough corners. 

  Remember to trim your nails in a well lit room, make sure you are sitting comfortably and well balanced.Do not rip your toe nail, as this causes more nail to be removed and usually a much deeper edge in the side of the nail or tearing the skin around the nail becoming a potential for infection and ingrown nails. 

    If you are having difficulty reaching your toes or handling the clippers have someone trim your nails for you.
