Tight Socks Can Damage Your Child's Legs!
In a recent study in the British Journal of Dermatology, as well as a study done at Washington University, researchers have discovered that many children have been scarred by wearing tight socks even just once. These "sock-band" lines are initially red markings that happen when the elastic band is too tight around the child's ankle or leg. While the redness will go away in a few hours, the raised welt that is left can be permanent, even after just a few hours of wearing socks that are too tight.
