If you are experiencing any foot pain or nail discoloration, it’s time to see a podiatrist or chiropodist. Krista Archer, DPM explained that some discolorations are caused by a dermatophyte, a fungal organism that responds to medical treatment. “One bug affects skin and nails,” she said. If skin is peeling and applying cream doesn’t seem to help, it’s likely a fungus and not simply dry skin. Fungal conditions are easy to pick up at gyms, pools, and even pedicure salons, according to Archer. “It jumps into your sneakers and lives there because the dermatophyte loves warm, moist, dark environments,” she said.

You can sterilize your shoes with a UV Total Recovery shoe sanitizer, available online. By simply inserting the shoe-shaped device inside your footwear, it can help kill fungus, spores, bacteria, and odors in just 15 minutes. Now that your feet have been treated, you can show them off in a pair of sandals. However, Dr. Archer warns, when walking around a city like New York or Toronto, it’s best to wear a closed-toe shoe to avoid any unsanitary conditions on the streets.
