BARE ANKLE LOOK INCREASES THE CHANCES OF FUNGAL INFECTIONS STATES PODIATRIST

 

 

 

Sporting the ‘bare’ or ‘naked ankle’ look has been in vogue lately, especially among the men as the ‘mankle’ continues to soar in popularity. Podiatrist Emma Stevenson, from the College of Podiatry, says, “As a whole, we are seeing more and more men coming to us with issues caused by poorly fitting footwear, and not just ones choosing to go sockless,” reported The Daily Telegraph.

Stevenson explained that the issue comes down to the amount of sweat produced by the feet (half a pint a day, apparently). When there are no socks to absorb the sweat, it leaves the feet more susceptible to fungal infections. It can usually be remedied with over-the-counter creams or by simply wearing your socks like a considerate, hygiene-abiding citizen.
