Health Tip: Traveling Feet

Protect them when you're overseas

(HealthDayNews) -- When you travel overseas, take good care of your feet.

You should bring comfortable, broken-in walking shoes. Don't go barefoot. Many bacteria, parasites, worms and leaches live in the soil and can invade your feet if you go barefoot, says the University of Maryland Traveler's Clinic.

Bring sandals or sneakers for walking on beaches. Jelly fish, stinging coral, poisonous rock fish, sea nettles and other painful and potentially dangerous hazards are found on or near beaches, particularly those in Asia and the South Pacific.
