Podiatry grade nail cutters are just the thing if you or your loved ones suffer from thick, difficult to trim toenails. This is what I recommend my patients for when they want a home treatment in between their office visits.
– Stainless steel that is fully autoclavable & reusable
– Textured grip handles
– A locking latch to prevent accidental injury for storage
– Ergonomically designed cantilever style, double action cutter decreases force on your hands while easily cutting away thick toenails
Tips from Dr. Tea
– Treat your feet with a nice Epsom salt foot soak. For very thick and hard toenails, soak feet in a bucket of warm water mixed with 1/2 cup of Epsom salt for 20 minutes prior to nail trimming. When finished, dry feet with towel, including in between the toes. This will help in softening the nails, remove debris, and relax you. Add a little lavender for a true home spa experience. After all, you deserve it.
If you have any cuts, infections or open wounds on your feet or between your toes, soaking your feet is not advised. Always seek medical advice prior to any home treatment, especially if you have diabetes or circulation problems.
