Walking barefoot raises your risk of developing plantar warts, which generally arm harmless but may spread and cause pain. The virus spreads readily in warm and moist environments, such as in bathrooms and locker rooms.
The American Podiatric Medical Association suggests how to thwart plantar warts:
- Avoid walking barefoot.
- Change shoes and socks daily.
- Keep feet clean and dry.
- Check children's feet regularly.
- Avoid contact with warts from other people or from other parts of the body.
- Do not ignore skin growths or changes.
