What Take Places If Your Feet Get Wet?


What Take Places If Your Feet Get Wet?
Any moisture that seeps inside tends to stay there when our feet are covered in socks, winter shoes, or boots. Being confined in a warm, moist, enclosed place quickly promotes sores and infection.

Yeast infections, including athlete's foot
Your feet are especially prone to infection because bacteria and fungus prefer wet, enclosed spaces, especially between the toes, though it can occur anywhere on the foot.
A common fungal illness known as athlete's foot is characterized by cracked, scaly skin that may also be red and irritated. This frequently causes unpleasant sores and is itchiness. If you're not careful, it can easily spread to other places of the body because it is contagious (and attractive to scratch).
Although painful, athlete's foot is rarely serious. In general, it is treatable with topical creams and better foot hygiene.

Onychomycosis: A Fungal Nail Infection
A fungal toenail infection can also be brought on by damp socks and feet. The nails may start to peel, disintegrate, and bend, which can be uncomfortable. They may even begin to pull away from the nail bed. A podiatrist can reshape the nail and apply topical creams to treat nail infections, but in severe cases, your doctor might prescribe an oral medication.
The best course of action is to prevent nail problems before they arise because they can be challenging to cure and require time to fix.

Trench foot
In World War One, this unpleasant foot ailment was discovered. For extended periods, soldiers in the trenches experienced extreme cold and damp feet.
Trench foot is still a risk if you're not taking the proper precautions if your employment requires you to spend a lot of time outside in severe weather (military, rescue worker, construction, for example), or if you enjoy extreme sports like fell-running or mountaineering.

Dead, flaking skin, blisters, itching, redness, and numbness are some of the symptoms. The latter is particularly alarming because it might be a sign of nerve and blood vessel damage.

Sores, rashes, and blisters Blisters and sores can develop as a result of constant friction. This typically occurs when shoes don't fit correctly, though it can also happen when your feet are wet. If left untreated, friction caused by dampness can result in sores and an infection.

Keep it from happening.
Preventing these problems from arising is the best way to handle them.
● Verify that your winter shoes fit comfortably.
● Don't forget to inspect the soles when looking for cracks and tears in your shoes and boots.
● If you spend a lot of time outside, wear high-quality, moisture-wicking socks and keep a spare pair with you.
● Remove soaked shoes as soon as you can.
● Before wearing them again, give your shoes a thorough drying and airing.

● Wear Dr. Luigi medical shoes to stop the spread of bacteria and fungus.
