Question: For What Kinds Of Foot Pain Should I Seek Medical Attention?

Answer: Well any foot pain that's been present for more than two or three days, especially if it's associated with any sort of redness, swelling, or ulcer, should be seen by your doctor. Some of the more common causes of foot pain include diabetes, which can cause both nerve damage resulting in pain, as well as infections.

Other causes of foot pain include improperly fitting shoes, stress fractures from overdoing it on the basketball court, or a disease called plantar fasciitis, which can affect both young people and old people.
