Flying for the Holidays? Remember Your Socks!


If you are flying this holiday season, you know you will have to take your shoes off as you pass through security.

Doctors say there is something else you need to remember, make sure to wear socks.

Even though it is winter, many people go without socks under their shoes or sandals.

That leaves you vulnerable at security checkpoints.

If you walk barefoot you could have a lot more than just dirty feet to worry about.

Athlete’s foot, warts and nail fungus are just some of the things to worry about.

While that all sounds revolting, doctors say you will not have to worry about any of those problems, as long as you walk through security in socks.
