Now it's getting warm I like to wear sandals or ballerina type shoes but my feet always sweat and I end up sliding about also my feet end up smelling?

Consider using a foot powder to absorb excess moisture. You can also try applying an over-the-counter topical antiperspirant to your feet.

When i wear running sneakers or high vamped shoes my feet fall asleep. My shoes are not too tight but my entire foot falls asleep. What causes this.

Squeezing Sneakers: When the entire foot falls asleep this typically is a result of lack of blood flow which in turn starves the nerves and tissues of much needed nutrients and oxygen. When blood flow returns, the nerves awake in a flurry of activity and send mixed messages, hence the tingling. Direct nerve compression gives a local numbness to a specific area. Check for vascular or nerve compression at the ankle. ...Read more

I bot a pare of lace up bootie heels n wore them only once cuz they were painful and once off, i noticed an air bubble in my skin. How do I rid it?

Skin bubble: Blisters form from friction against the skin, but also moisture is needed. Pop the blister and apply a bandaid. To prevent then, change shoes and socks, try moisture control by using spray deodorant on your feet (yes, the same armpit deodorant you buy). This may help decrease moisture and therefore decrease chance of blisters. ...Read more
