Think You Have a Heel Spur? It’s Probably Plantar Fasciitis
(http://ow.ly/XNjp30n2ddA)

Do your heels hurt? Do you think you have a heel spur? Unfortunately, you probably have plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the tissue that runs underneath your foot, called the plantar fascia. If you have plantar fasciitis, you may often have quite a bit of pain in your heel, which can often be confused with heel spurs. Some of the risk factors that may lead you to plantar fasciitis are tight calf muscles that make it difficult to flex your foot, obesity, very high arch, repetitive impact activity such as running, or new or increased physical activity.

(http://ow.ly/ntLA30n2ddx)

Your foot is incredibly important to your overall health—if your foot is injured, it will limit your mobility, your activities, and your ability to exercise. The best thing to do if you have foot issues from pain to infection is to speak with your podiatrist. Some things to look out for is athlete's foot, which is a rash (especially between your toes) that is caused by a fungal infection. Another thing to look out for is nail fungal infection (onychomycosis); a brownish, yellowish or whitish fungal infection located under the nail.

(http://ow.ly/8rg230n2ddv)

Plantar fasciitis can be an excruciating experience that severely limits your activity; fortunately, researchers have been developing several ways to treat this issue. Traditionally, doctors want to treat plantar fasciitis nonsurgically—from foot and toe exercises to cortisone injections. However, new treatments have been developed: such as extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) that stimulates new tissue formation.

It is estimated that 70% of people will get athlete's foot at least once in their lives, and I'm sure you'd rather not have to deal with dry skin, itching, burning, redness, blistering with drainage, skin peeling, cracking of the skin, and odor. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to prevent athlete's foot: such as keeping your feet dry, changing your socks regularly, wearing well-ventilated shoes, alternate between shoes, and protect your feet in public spaces (such as wearing sandals in public showers).
