Proper footwear: Is essential. Supportive inserts or orthotics will be helpful. Start walking more and exercise to build up strength and endurance.

Yes: Bring a few pairs of shoes, if you will be walking alot, have a good pair of walking shoes. Good job planning ahead!

Yes: I would also take neosporin and bandaids.
My 3.5 year walks with rt. foot pointed out. I never it noticed until somebody pointed it out to me. Is this something he will grow out of?

It depends: External rotation of the leg can originate from the hip (femoral head), knee (external tibial rotation), ankle, or forefoot. Some of these conditions improve on their own, others require intervention. It is best to let a pediatric orthopedist sort this out for you.
