As winter continues, some areas have been experiencing extremely low winter temperatures. Whether you are out playing in the snow or are stuck outdoors, it is crucial to keep your feet warm. Keeping your feet warm is vital in keeping the blood circulating as it should throughout the body. When your body experiences cold temperatures, the blood vessels in your feet constrict in order to keep the circulation at the center of your body. Tissue can become damaged during this process. The toes are an area to keep an eye on in order to prevent frostbite.
Children, the elderly, and diabetics are all at an increased risk for developing frostbite. To prevent this from happening to you:
- Avoid getting your feet wet in the cold
- Limit your time outside if possible, especially in wet conditions
- Wear warm moisture wicking socks
- Wear shoes that do not have holes or mesh in order to keep the heat in
If you think you have experienced frostbite, please do not wait to take action. (615)220-8788.
