In honor of all the fathers and fathers-to-be on Father’s Day, here are some common foot issues that often affect men – and what to do about them.
If you follow shoe trends – or maybe that special lady in your life does – you probably have heard of the new floss heels. A floss heel – named for the dental product because their straps are so wispy – has virtually no supportive structure for the foot, even with a thin ankle strap. The heel is flimsy and, at 2 ½ inches, is a little too high for daily wear.
Do you have pain in one or more toenails? Does it look red and swollen? Is it uncomfortable or even painful when you put on shoes? If you answered “Yes” to one or more of these questions, you may have an ingrown toenail.
It’s common for people to not always consider a problem before it personally affects them. One foot issue, in particular, that isn’t often considered until it’s already a problem is foot fungus.
