Tips to Prevent Fungus Problems

  • Keep feet clean and dry, especially in-between toes.
  • Never wear the same pair of shoes two days in a row. Throughout the day your feet sweat into your shoes which creates the perfect conditions for bacteria to grow. Give shoes 24 hours in between wears to dry out.
  • Socks should be changed daily and never share socks or footwear with another person.
  • Avoid walking bare foot in public areas such as showers, locker rooms and pools.
  • Keep toenails short and clean and remove any hard skin with a foot file, like a pumice. Hard skin can become soggy when damp, which provides an ideal home for bacteria.
  • Avoid injuring the toenails, which can lead to infection.
