No: But if someone is still growing it might be favorable to keep their feet in a more normal position during development.

What is causeing my big toenail to be soft no growth and has moisture when wearing socks and shoes all day ?
A few things: Wearing shoe and socks all day long can trap moisture in the skin and nails. If your nail has been injured there can be damage to the nail plate, or an yeast or fungal infection can thrive under these conditions. Keeping the feet dry is important. Using antiperspirant sprays, absorbant foot powders, and changing socks more frequently can help. See a podiatrist about any potential nail infection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why do I have pinky toenail fungus? Is it bc my toe has some trauma from being inside a shoe? Or is it bc our new home encourages fungus growth?
Hold on a minute.: The nail on the little toe, because of it's precarious location, can often times thicken and become discolored. This does not necessarily mean that the nail has a fungal infection.

I'm Overheating!: Sometimes when we wear socks and shoes, we occlude the sweat glands of our feet (over 500, 000 of them). Occluding the sweat glands causes the feet to feel "hot" in shoes. Also, if the shoes are too tight, it can make the same sensation. Wear wicking=type socks and shoes with a breathable canvas or mesh "upper". This should help reduce the symptoms. You can use a daily foot deoderant as well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
