Socks causing discomfort

by Amy
(UK)

My 4 year old daughter hates wearing socks and makes a huge fuss, kicking and screaming every time i put them on her, she says they hurt her, i'm not sure if she is just being 4 or if there is actually a problem. She also seems sensitive to seams on her clothes.

Sandals!
by: Anonymous

I'm an adult, and I think socks are the worst thing that can befall a human being ;) I wear ballet flats (which I take off when I get where I'm going) or Birkenstock sandals almost exclusively.

Diabetic seamless socks!

We had this problem as well. A SLP I work with mentioned seamless socks for diabetics. It was a miracle! We ordered them online and she was a new person with getting socks on!

New socks

I have SPD myself,and when I was younger, I also complained of my socks hurting. That is because I am over sensitive to the touch of the material. some days it was the elastic around my ankles, other days it was the material was to scratchy.

Personally my solution to this problem was to find a sock made of material that didn't bother me. I always preferred socks that were made out of micro-fibre but that's what I like, everyone has a preference . Being 20 years old now, I find I cope much better with these kinds of things now, I even wear normal socks.I hope this helps .

inside out

Turning the socks inside out works wonders for my son...he hates the feel of the seam.

sock trouble

I too have a hard time with socks and I'm an adult. The easiest solution for me has been to turn my socks inside out. What a difference it makes. Hope this helps!
