Pandemic foot problems

Unfortunately, during this pandemic, I have observed an uptick of new patients who have developed foot problems while working from home.
Going barefoot without footwear has been a common cause of foot pain. Walking barefoot on ceramic tiles and hardwood floors is difficult on your feet especially over an extended period of time. Eventually, you might stub your toes, Ouch!
Some people have acquired the “Quarantine 19” of weight gain which unfortunately places more stress on their feet.
Next up is the decision to start a home exercise routine. This too can lead to foot problems.
And finally people have been performing a lot of work around their homes which also has contributed to new foot problems.
Post script. I forgot to add this foot problem. People have try to cut their nails to avoid an ingrown nail. Unfortunately, they have caused an infected ingrown nail.
