Health Tip: Moisturize Your Diabetic Feet
Helps prevent cracking and drying

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Diabetics, often plagued by poor circulation, must pay careful attention to the feet. Moisturizing your feet regularly can help keep the skin from cracking and drying.

The American Diabetes Association offers these moisturizing suggestions:

  • Gently dry your feet after your bath or shower, then coat feet with a small amount of hand cream or petroleum jelly.
  • Avoid rubbing creams or oils between the toes. This increases a person's risk of fungal infection.
  • Avoid soaking your feet, which ultimately can dry the skin.
