When worn without socks, certain footwear can cause foot injuries. Remember that plasters tend to wrinkle and peel off when walking, so it is best to invest in protective remedies specially designed for the feet. Anti-chafing sticks can be used anywhere on the foot, and in general they are quite effective. If you prefer a more specific product for a specific area, it will not be difficult to find it either.

If your problem is your toes and you are wearing a covered shoe, consider protective tubes for calluses, bunions, and sore fingers and nails. The back of the foot is another one that tends to cause problems with shoe rubbing. In this case, the best remedy is transparent patches. There are both large and smaller ones for blisters on the fingers.
