Hammer Toes, Claw Toes, Mallet Toes, Curly Toes & Webbed Toes are all toe deformities. Most of these conditions are caused by poorly fitting, tight shoes combined with a muscle imbalance. Two main muscles work together to bend and straighten the toes. When shoes are too tight and short or heels are too high and do not fit properly, the toe is forced to stay bent for long periods of time and the muscles and tendons shorten and contract. The toe cannot straighten out and it becomes permanently bent.
There are also such things as athlete's foot, , and warts. These things can be easily prevented.

It is extremely important to always wear shoes when you shower and to dry your feet off right away. Also, try not to wear sweaty socks for long periods of time or wear shoes without socks. Any problem on the outside of your foot can be prevented by being more careful about hygiene. If you walk around public places without shoes on often, there is a greater chance that you will contract an infection.

I was under strict orders to not walk or put any pressure on my foot. That made things like going to the bathroom impossible. It's no fun trying to use a bedpan and even though I had to pee like a racehorse, I just couldn't manage the task. After three hours of pain I heard the "C" word;, no not the really bad "C" word, I heard catheter. If you've never had one of these inserted into your body consider yourself lucky. I guess that was all that was needed and I was finally able to have some relief. After that, my doctor ordered a bedside toilet.
He discovered his "cherry cure" by accident. One day, he ate a large bowl of cherries and the next day, his Foot Pain was gone. He found that as long as he ate the cherries every day, his gout was controlled.
Firstly, you should make sure the size of the shoes is suitable for your feet. When you buy shoes, you should not only pay attention to the styles. More often, women will be more likely to be attracted by the fashionable designs of the shoes. However, you should check your size first and find the one that is fit for your own size rather than buying shoes of wrong size. And you should check your size often because it usually changes as you age. And the right foot and left foot often have different sizes.
