Wear Shoes in Public
Sometimes it’s fun to walk outside or go to public places with low quality or no shoes. However, protective footwear is important to fight fungal infections and other hazards that come in contact with your feet.
Try Not to Share Footgear
You have no idea where someone else’s foot has been or what bacteria it is carrying. It is best not to share footwear so that your foot is not exposed to unwanted ailments.
What to Look Out For
When it comes to examining and being aware of your feet, there are some common things that you shouldn’t ignore. These include the following:
- Discoloration. There are a variety of ailments and fungal infections that turn the skin of your feet a yellow, brown, or green tint. If you see something like this, it’s a good idea to get it checked out.
- Unnatural Bumps. When your feet are in distress, caused by uncomfortable shoes or improper care, bumps start to form. They may come up slowly, but it is important to notice when this happens. These may include bunion, which should be treated by a specialist.
- Dry or Peeling Skin. If you have dry skin and lotion won’t help, you may have athlete’s foot or another ailment. To get proper treatment is important to eliminate this problem.
