Uggs May Increase Risk Of Foot Fungus

Ugg oh!

Podiatrist Dr. Olivier Zong, director of surgery at NYC Footcare, says “fungus breeds in dark, wet environments–conditions that are usually seen inside trendy sheepskin boots.”

Fortunately for Ugg-wearers, many podiatrists disagree.

Said Dr. Howard Shapiro, a DPM with Manhattan Podiatry:

“Foot fungus likes a dark moist environment–so any sock and shoe could provide that, especially during the winter. Foot fungus affects about 40% of the population prior to Uggs it was still affecting 40% of the population.”

That being said, if you do wear Uggs, make sure to keep your feet as dry and as clean as possible!
