  • How does a blister form?

    Blisters are formed by the rubbing pressure from tight- or poor-fitting shoes. Dr. Scholl's® Cushlin® UltraSlim® Blister Treatment helps heal blisters on feet and hands. It also protects sensitive areas from friction to prevent blisters from forming.

  • What are corns?

    Corns are hard layers of dead skin that appear as round, yellow corn kernel-like growths on the top of or between the toes. They can be caused by friction between a tight or poor-fitting shoe and the foot, forming a bump over time.

  • What causes foot odour and how can I prevent it?

    Foot odour occurs when excessive foot perspiration and bacteria mix together. To help eliminate odour, wash and dry feet thoroughly and apply Dr. Scholl's® Odour Destroyers™ Deodorant Foot Powder with Zinoxol™ orDr. Scholl's® Odour Destroyers™ Deodorant Spray with Zinoxol™ to feet and shoes daily. In addition, be sure to wear appropriately padded socks made of acrylic fibers - they let feet breathe better than most natural fibres.

  • What is an ingrown toenail?

    Ingrown nails, a common toenail impairment, are nails whose corners or sides dig painfully into the soft tissue of nail grooves, often leading to irritation, redness and swelling. Frequently caused by improperly trimmed nails, the best way to avoid ingrown nails is to cut nails straight across, slightly longer than the end of the toe.
