FLIP-FLOPS EXPOSE FEET TO INFECTIONS

 

PODIATRIST, DR. JACQUELINE SUTERA STATES, "AS THE WEATHER WARMS UP, IT'S HARD TO RESIST TO BREAK OUT THE TRUEST SIGN OF SUMMER: FLIP-FLOPS.  BUT MOST EXPERTS ARE HORRIFIED BY THE IDEA.  HERE'S WHY YOU SHOULD RESERVE YOUR FLIP-FLOPS FOR THE BEACH, POOL, SPA, AND SHARED SHOWERS - AND KEEP YOUR FEET OUT OF THEM, OTHERWISE.  THEY EXPOSE YOUR FEET TO BACTERIA, VIRAL AND FUNGAL INFECTIONS.  ANY TIME YOUR FEET GET PARTICULARLY FILTHY (I.E., ANY TIME YOU WEAR YOUR FLIP-FLOPS IN PUBLIC), THEY'RE LIKELY COVERED IN SOME NASTY THINGS LIKE STAPHYLOCOCCUS, A BACTERIA THAT CAN IRRITATE THE SKIN ON YOUR FOOT, IN THE BEST CASE, OR LEAD TO AMPUTATION IN THE WORST-CASE SCENARIOS.  IT DEPENDS ON WEATHER YOU HAVE OPEN WOUNDS, LIKE MICROWOUNDS FROM EXFOLIATION DURING A RECENT PEDICURE, OR ACTUAL CUTS, AND YOUR STATE OF HEALTH WHEN YOU PICK UP THE BACTERIA."
