12 Nov Prevent Athlete’s Foot
Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection that results in intensely itchy patches on the skin of your feet and between your toes. Other symptoms of Athlete’s foot include dry, flaking skin, redness and, even oozing blisters from a secondary bacterial infection.
An experienced podiatrist can help you prevent this highly contagious fungal infection. These include:
- Don’t walk barefoot in public places, such as the pool, beach restrooms and locker rooms. Wear flip flops or shower shoes to prevent infections. ‘
- Do not share towels, socks, shoes and any other items that may have touched someone else’s feet.
- Keep your feet clean and dry because fungi thrive in dark, warm and moist places.
- Change your socks if they feel damp. Apply antifungal powder each day before you put socks on to avoid infection.
- Practice good foot hygiene. Wash your feet every day with a mild soap and water. Dry completely, especially the area between your toes.
- If you see the symptoms of athlete’s foot, visit your podiatrist as soon as possible.
