Description: Let-you-feet-breathe-postnoon-newsWith spring weather making its arrival, more people are susceptible to changes in footwear including open shoes. With warm weather there also come some dangers. Heavy socks and the wearing of closed shoes for long periods of time increase the possibility of fungal growth and athlete’s feet.

Deepashri, Editor of Post Noon suggests, allowing your feet to breathe in warm weather by wearing open shoes. Also, avoid wearing thick socks can help your feet stay more sanitary and hygienic.“It is very common. Every fourth or fifth person has it. It is very common in those with diabetes and people who always wear shoes, resulting in lack of air circulation to the feet” Dermatologist Dr Sunitha Sekhar Reddy of ADI clinics said.

Anyone is susceptible in attaining Athlete’s foot, but can be easily avoided following the right preventative care and treatment. A chiropodist like Marz Hardy of Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics will be able to determine your condition and follow the appropriate treatment options for foot care needs.

What is Athlete’s Foot?

If you suffer from itching, burning, dry, and flaking feet, this may be a sign of athlete's foot.

It is commonly found in public changing areas and bathrooms, dormitory style living quarters, around locker rooms and public swimming pools.
