Shoes should fit. Your child’s feet can grow up to two sizes in six months, so account for growth when shopping. This doesn’t mean you should buy shoes that are too big - oversized shoes can cause the foot slide forward, putting excessive pressure on the toes. A good fit is about a fingers width from the end of the shoe to the tip of the big toe.
 
Tight shoes can cause blisters, corns, and calluses on your child’s toes, blisters on the back of the heels, or worse, ingrown toenails, which can become infected. 
 
Signs of infection from ingrown nails include pain, redness, or fluid draining from the area. If you notice any of these symptoms, please call one of our Advanced Podiatry offices in Manhasset, Huntington, Maspeth, Plainview, or Coram and schedule an appointment with one of our award-winning, expert podiatrists who can perform a simple, safe, in office procedure to remove the infected nail.
