1. Don't go barefoot in a public shower.

Gym showers and locker-room floors are a big-time breeding ground for the fungus that causes athlete's foot.

2. Pointy pumps are the worst.
Shoes that push the big toe into smaller toes set you up for bunions, bumps that form over the bone at the base of the big toe, says Pidich.

3. People with diabetes need to take special care of their feet.
check your feet daily for blisters, cuts, redness, and ulcers. If wounds are neglected, you might get an infection, which could lead to serious consequences.

If you are having problems with your feet, and you need professional advise, visit one of our Peermed Healthcare Centres to speak to one of our Podiatrists.
