If you have a yellow toenail, or notice that they are cracked or are even causing you pain, you may have toenail fungus. It’s important to get it treated immediately.
Fungus lives and thrives in areas that are damp and warm, which means your shoes are prime real estate. Keeping your shoes clean and dry is one of the best ways to fight fungus. This means allowing at least 24 hours for your footwear to completely dry out before wearing them again. You can also wear socks that wick moisture away from your feet.
If you are going to be in a public place, such as a gym shower, you should always wear water shoes. These little steps can make the difference between clean feet and a fungal infection nightmare.
For more information on treating an infection, call Dr. Marco Vargas at (888) 784-5335 to make an appointment at Foot & Ankle Associates in Houston.
