According to Healthline, there are 3 types of people who may benefit from regularly soaking their feet in warm salty water.
Athletes or physically active individuals: People who engage in regular physical activity, particularly high-impact or weight-bearing exercises, often put a lot of strain on their feet. Soaking their feet in warm salty water can help soothe tired muscles, reduce inflammation, and alleviate foot pain or discomfort associated with intense physical activity.
Individuals with certain foot conditions: People who have specific foot conditions, such as plantar fasciitis, bunions, or arthritis, may find relief from soaking their feet in warm salty water. The warmth and salt can provide a soothing effect, reduce swelling, and alleviate pain or stiffness associated with these conditions.
Individuals with skin infections or wounds: People who have skin infections, such as athlete's foot or fungal nail infections, or individuals with minor wounds or blisters on their feet can benefit from regular foot soaking. The warm salty water can help cleanse the affected area, promote healing, and prevent further infection.
However, it's important to note that individual circumstances may vary, and it's always recommended to consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice regarding foot care and treatment options.
