During cold and moist weather conditions it is significant to keep your feet warm and ironic. It can be vital for the elderly and people with circulation problems such as Raynaud’s syndrome and especially important for diabetics.

That is why your fingers and toes feel colder and subsequently numb with drawn-out photographs to cold weather.
Follow These Instructions:
Wear thicker non-constricting socks.
Wear comfortable fitting (never too tight) waterproof boots.
Should your feet be exposed to cold and dampness for any prolonged period Do NOT put them in HOT water, near a flame (such as a fireplace) or use a heating pad?
