What Is a Podiatrist?
When Should I Call a Doctor?
● There is a noticeable change to your skin or toenails.
● You are experiencing persistent pain in your ankles or feet.
● Your feet are severely cracking, peeling, or scaling.
● You have blisters on your feet.
● You have signs of a bacterial infection.
What Are Some of the Most Common Fungal Problems?
Acute fungal infections are seen more in children, while chronic fungal infections are most common in adults.
How Should I Care for My Feet?
Make sure to wash your feet regularly, especially between the toes. Be sure to dry your feet thoroughly.
How Should I Care for My Feet When I Exercise?
Find a pair of sneakers that are appropriate for the activity you are doing. For example, if you wear running shoes for an aerobics class, you can sustain ankle or foot injuries. Your sneakers should fit properly with orthotics if you wear them.
Socks matter, too. Look for socks that are the right size, suited for your activity, and that are moisture-wicking.
What Types of Shoes Should I Wear?
Buy shoes later in the day, when your feet are at their largest. Remember that sizes vary by brand, so judge by fit rather than the marked size.
