If a toddler goes barefoot most of the day on cold floors, can that lead to a kidney infection? The child is always dressed warmly but refuses to wear anything on feet.

Now being winter, and moved to a house in colder area, she constantly has a cold. Her concerned grandma always thought it was obvious that by walking on cold surfaces barefoot, chills from underfoot could enhance kidney problems?

    Since this is entirely a health question, I am migrating this to our sister site about medical issues. – Erica May 26 '16 at 1:20

    I really think there's no correlation between walking barefoot on cold floors and kidneys. Pls check en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barefoot#Health_implications - however, you must ensure your toddler get all the vaccines. – Leo Jun 6 '16 at 8:14
