To avoid injury and germs wear shoes at all times outdoors, at home and especially if you are in hospital. Your feet are prone to infection. Wearing correct footwear helps you avoid injury and keep germs off your feet.
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.
