The Importance of Wearing Cotton Socks

Your feet need to breathe. Hi, I’m Doctor Gabe Rodriguez, a podiatrist in Sioux Falls, and today I would like to talk to you about choosing your socks wisely.

Fabrics differ in their ability to absorb moisture and to allow the skin to breathe. When it comes to socks, it is preferable to choose cotton fabric rather than nylon or wool, as it keeps feet dry and airy the best. This is important because fabrics that remain wet from perspiration can cause feet to develop bacteria and fungus, which can turn into ailments like fungal nail.

If you think you may have developed bacterial issues or even fungal nail, I invite you to stop by my office here in Sioux Falls. Click here for my full report on fungal nail and to make an appointment: http://siouxfallspodiatrist.net/fungal
