Foot problems are common Clear Nails Plus Review during the summer months. This is due to numerous reasons, but mainly because people are generally more active in the summer while tending to wear less supportive shoes. However, they are not inevitable, as there are some basic steps that can be taken for prevention. This article will discuss five common summer foot problems, and what measures can be taken to prevent them. Warts The summertime is an ideal time for people to contract foot warts. A wart is an infection of the skin by a virus. This virus is transmitted by someone with warts who leaves behind a small flake of kin containing the virus. When another person steps on the skin particle, the virus can potentially enter the skin of that second person, beginning the infection. Warts on the feet (called plantar warts because of their location on the sole, or plantar surface of the feet, though the word planter's is often mistakenly used) develop into a hard callus-like growth with ridges, possible black seed-like dots from blood vessel strangulation, and pain on pressure or squeezing. Home treatment is usually ineffective, unlike hand warts, and the infection can spread around the skin, leading to greater numbers of warts and larger size. They are typically contracted in the summer in places where people go barefoot, including locker rooms, changing rooms, pool decks, and shower stalls. One simple way to prevent this infection is to wear sandals in public showers, changing rooms, and outer pool surfaces. This keeps infected skin particles from contacting bare skin, and can eliminate the risk of infection. Athlete's Foot and Nail Fungus Fungus in the medical sense is a microscopic organism like a bacteria that can infect human tissue. It prefers dark, warmer, moister environments, and subsequently thrives well on the feet, which usually are enclosed in shoes. In the summer, as the temperature increases, so does the sweating of the feet, making the environment around the foot and toe spaces more hospitable for fungus, which is essentially everywhere. Certain types of fungus like to attack and live off of skin tissue, and will cause an infection that creates peeling, cracking, itching, and sometimes burning skin.
