When your feet hurt, your whole life can be thrown upside down, as you try to figure out how to manage every step of the day. As you get older, though, feet can become even more of an issue, making extra TLC more important than ever.
1. Know Your Foot Size - It May Have Changed
Just because you've worn a certain size your entire life, doesn't mean you'll stay in that size forever.
If you participate in sports, either professionally or as a leisurely pastime, you may be affected at some time or another with a condition known as athlete's foot. Athlete's foot is an infection that begins with an overgrowth of fungus. It may cause an itchy rash between toes that forms blisters or peeling of the skin. This type of fungal infection is common among athletes, especially runners. There are ways to avoid this condition, such as keeping the feet dry and wearing shoes and socks that allow moisture to be wicked away.
