Your feet are prone to infection. To avoid injury and germs wear shoes at all times, including in the hospital, outdoors and at home. This helps you avoid injury and keep germs off your feet. Shelli was unable to wear heels but she made sure her feet sparkled in flats!
Chemotherapy and radiation cause many changes in the body as they destroy cancer cells. One major change is that these treatments weaken your immune system, which can increase your chances of getting an infection, including a fungal infection. Feet can be suffocated inside shoes and socks all day and become sweaty, stinky, and the perfect vehicles for all sorts of tiny germs. Remember to keep them clean and aired too.
