Pay attention to your feet. Cuts and open areas on feet can be an entrance for infection-causing bacteria. Wear comfortable, well-fitting shoes and socks. Open-toed shoes, sandals and flip flops are not recommended for exercise. Pool/water shoes protect your feet during water activities. Check your feet before and after exercise for reddened or open areas. If you see anything irregular, contact your physician immediately.
