    Which would you do for your own nails and why?

    for me I would clip my nails, then file it, then wash it. After that I would lotion it. Im not sure if this is the right answer, but thats how i do it. Anyone else?

    What are the risks related to foot care for a diabetic patient?

    asking vague, snide questions like those, arent really helping...just saying. Knowing the risk doesnt mean you will know the exact correct order >_>

    Take Care of Your Toenails

    Cut toenails after bathing, when they are soft. Trim them straight across, then smooth with a nail file. Avoid cutting into the corners of toes. You may want a podiatrist (foot doctor) to do it for you.
    Don't cut cuticles.
