Summer Rx: Beware of Barefoot Hazards

June 24th, 2016 by Dr.Chang



With July 4th around the corner we are spending more time outdoors. The pool, beaches, and even your own backyard can put your feet at risk of injury. Here are some reasons not to ditch your shoes this summer.

  1. Puncture Wounds / Trauma:  Cuts, scrapes, and sharp objects like rusty nails or broken shells cause breaks in the skin and set you up for serious bacterial or viral infections.
  2. Skin Burns:  Sidewalks, sand, and driveways can get very hot and burn the skin on the bottom of the foot. This is especially a risk for diabetic patients or patients with neuropathy who may not have the ability to feel warm temperatures or sharp sensations.  Never walk or run on a hot surface without footwear.
  3. Infections: Pools, hot tubs, saunas and public showers can harbor bacteria, viruses, warts and fungus. Protect your feet with pool shoes or flip-flops.                                                                                                                            Have a fun and safe summer and remember to use appropriate footwear  for your activities
