Blisters form when the top three layers of the skin become wounded and separate, creating a fluid-filled pocket meant to protect the skin underneath from further damage. The resulting blister is often painful and can impede mobility.
Calluses are usually found on the bottom of the foot or on the heel since they take most of the pressure produced during walking or running. Because calluses are dense, there may be additional stress created on the skin.
Characterized by an unnatural bend in the toe joint, hammertoes can cause many inconveniences with shoe fitting and normal mobility. Over time, the toes can become rigid and have permanently flexed toes.
Gout often affects the big toe joint and can plague other parts of the foot. Obesity and diet can increase your risk of gout because the body makes more uric acid, often as a result of foods with high sugar and purine content, including alcoholic drinks.
