(http://ow.ly/wkIS30lV7X4)

Surprisingly, smoking cigarettes can affect the health of your feet. Smoking can negatively affect your circulation, including the circulation in your feet. If you need help quitting, talk to your doctor or call 1-800-QUIT-NOW. In addition to quitting smoking, you can improve your foot health by staying active and maintaining a healthy weight.

Nail Fungus: When to See the Podiatrist
(http://ow.ly/3rnH30lV7WW)

Don't let embarrassment over a foot condition keep you from receiving the care you need. Your podiatrist is here to help you! When it comes to nail fungus, it's important to see your doctor to receive treatment to prevent the infection from worsening. A mild infection may be characterized by discolored or thick nails, but if the infection progresses, it can actually cause your nails to start to disintegrate.

If you have diabetes and suspect an infection, it is especially important for you to skip the OTC treatments and see your podiatrist right away.

5 Foot Conditions and What You Can Do About Them
(http://ow.ly/98oc30lV7WS)

Even though pool season is over, it's still possible to contract a wart. The locker room at the rec center or indoor gym can be the perfect place for the virus to spread. If you develop a wart, you might start to feel the "pebble in the shoe" sensation. While you can try to treat a wart at home, it's best to get it taken care of quickly at the podiatrist to reduce your chance of spreading warts to your family members.

Causes of Bunions: Are Shoes the Only Culprit?
(http://ow.ly/cow530lV7WM)

Most people blame tight shoes or high heels for bunions, but the truth is that while high heels can make bunions worse, there are many causes for bunions. Hereditary, for instance, plays a big role in whether or not a person develops bunions. Bunions can also be caused by conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. Regardless of what causes your bunions, you may find that custom orthotics from your podiatrist help relieve your symptoms.
