CORONAVIRUS UPDATE:

In the midst of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns, we want to let you know what we at Dr. James Hanna are doing to keep our staff and patients safe. We place the highest priority on the health and safety of our patients and team members

 

We have been tracking Coronavirus (COVID-19) and we continue to actively monitor guidance from the CDC so we can be sure that we are taking the most comprehensive actions.

We have placed hand sanitizer in addition to soap in the restrooms and hand sanitizer in each treatment room.  We also have hand sanitizer at our reception desk.

Our team members always wash their hands before each appointment. Our practice utilizes "universal precautions" for every patient ensuring our instruments are sterilized and all surfaces in the treatment rooms are disinfected.  We always utilize surgical masks for minor procedures and gloves that are changed for each patient.

 

•  We have encouraged all team members to remain home when sick and urge our patients to do the same.

Here's what YOU can do to help:

Wash your hands frequently. If washing with soap and water it is recommended to wash for at least 20 seconds (sing the Happy Birthday song twice). If washing with soap and water is unavailable to you then please use hand sanitizer.

Please utilize tissues if sneezing or coughing and then throw the tissue away.

Please wipe down your phone(s) regularly as these are frequently touching many surfaces during the course of your day.

If you are sick, please consider rescheduling your appointment.  Anyone who experiences a fever, chest congestion and or coughing should remain home.


For additional information, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website at www.cdc.gov

We will continue to keep you informed as more information becomes available.

Thank you,

 

Dr. Hanna and Staff

Most blisters on the feet are caused by friction and do not require medical attention. New skin will form underneath the affected area and the fluid built up in the blister is simply absorbed back into the tissue. You can soothe ordinary blisters with vitamin E ointment or an aloe-based cream.

Do not puncture a blister unless it is large, painful, or likely to be further irritated. If you have to pop a blister, use a sterilized needle or razor blade. Wash the area thoroughly, then make a small hole and gently squeeze out the clear fluid. Apply a dab of hydrogen peroxide to help protect against infection. Do not remove the skin over a broken blister. The new skin underneath needs this protective cover. Cover the area with a bandage and mild compression.

If the fluid is white or yellow, the blister is infected and needs medical attention.

Preventing Blisters

You can prevent blisters by breaking in new shoes gradually, and putting petroleum jelly or an adhesive bandage on areas that take the rub—before the blister happens.  Wear socks that have heels instead of tube socks (they bunch up and cause blisters). Acrylic and other synthetic-fiber socks are good choices. Be sure to wash and dry your feet daily to prevent bacterial infections, such as Athlete's Foot.
