Health Tip: Shoes Too Tight?

(HealthDay News) -- You're not doing your feet any favors by wearing shoes that are too small.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says shoes that are too tight may lead to these medical problems:

  • Bunions or hammertoes.
  • Corns.
  • Toes that cross over each other.
  • Ingrown toenails.
  • Complications from diabetes that you may not feel due to poor sensation in the feet. These problems may include blisters or sores that can trigger serious infections.
