foot specialist rosenburg txNo one wants to find out that they have a fungal infection on their feet. It’s extremely uncomfortable! Our foot specialist in Rosenburg, TX, offers some information on how to avoid fungal foot issues and tips on how to treat them.

Types of Fungal Infections

There are different types of fungal infections. Fungal toenail infections cause the nail to yellow, harden, and become brittle. Athlete’s foot is generally caused by feet sweating inside tight-fitting shoes and causes a red, scaly, and itchy rash between the toes and along the bottom of the foot.

Thankfully, fungal infections can be avoided by taking a few precautions and there are plenty of treatment options available for both conditions.

Preventative Tips to Avoid Fungal Infections

To prevent fungal toenails, make sure you trim your toenails regularly. Feet tend to get sweaty and create a moist, dark environment inside your shoes. If you have long toenails with dirt underneath, it becomes the perfect place for fungus to grow.

Wear proper footwear. Make sure your shoes fit well and that your footwear is comfortable and breathable. Moisture-wicking socks are a great choice, as are shoes that allow airflow, like leather or canvas. If you use public showers, wear sandals when showering.

Treating a Fungal Foot Problem

There are over-the-counter fungal nail creams and lacquers that can help get rid of the infection. There are special athlete’s foot powders as well. Your podiatrist may prescribe antifungal pills if the infection does not go away after using these products. In some fungal toenail cases, the nail may need to be removed completely to clear the infection.

Do not use nail polish when treating a fungal infection. Keep your feet clean and dry, and make sure your clippers and any other tools are clean, too. Your condition should clear up, and if not, be sure to contact your podiatrist!

Contact Our Foot Specialist in Rosenburg, TX, today if you have any questions regarding fungal foot problems.
