If you’ve been walking shoe-free in the sand or going barefoot in the backyard this summer, remember that warm weather days can bring their own set of tootsie troubles. "Even if you are just lying still on your back soaking up the rays, your feet are still vulnerable," says American Podiatric Medical Association member Dr. Jane Andersen.

"You can seriously sunburn your feet and no matter how upscale your hotel, athlete's foot can lurk in all public pool areas." Limit walking barefoot because it exposes feet to sunburn, as well as plantar warts, athlete's foot, ringworm, and other infections, and also increases risk of injury to your feet.
