Dry feet are a constant problem. Even here in Houston, where we have high humidity, our skin gets dry. Add to that open shoes and sandals that invite dust and dirt onto our feet and they're drying even more. This can lead to cracking, bleeding, and pain. For people with diabetes, it is dangerous as it increases the chance of a foot infection.
I have long been an advocate for moisturizing your feet regularly. There are a variety of creams, available in both pharmacies and here in our office, that do well to penetrate the skin. Sometimes, however that is not enough. We recently were introduced to the Adessa Moisturizing Gel Socks.
Adessa Moisturizing Gel Socks are a soft sock with a gel lining from heel to toe. The gel is infused with vitamins, nutrients, and essential oils to restore the soft appearance of your feet. The socks can be used after applying cream or just used on their own.
Since making Adessa Moisturizing Gel Socks available to our patients, we are hearing rave reviews. People who constantly have had cracking heels find that they are healing and staying healed. People who always forget to apply cream to their feet find it much easier to slip the socks on daily. We have patients buying the socks for other family members and to give as gifts.
Stop by our office to see for yourself. We will be happy to show you a sample so you can see and feel for yourself. Of course, if your dry, cracked feet are causing you pain, be sure to contact Tanglewood Foot Specialists for an immediate appointment.
