Head off Fungal Nail Causes with Good Hygiene

On Saturday June 7th from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM, the 25th Annual Accordion Kings & Queens Festival takes place at the Miller Outdoor Theatre. This is an event not to be missed, with dancing and live music. If you suffer from uncomfortable nail fungus it might be difficult to step out and enjoy an evening of polka dancing. Fungal nail causes vary, but the main thing to remember is to keep your feet clean.

Tip Toe

A fungal infection can happen to anyone. Fungus thrives in warm and damp environments, such as your shoes. When your feet are confined to your moist shoes day after day, you run the risk of contracting a fungus. They enter through small cuts in the skin near your nails, and once they are there, they are difficult to get rid of. Most often people pick up these little microorganisms in public showers or bathrooms. It’s easier to prevent an infection than it is to treat one that already exists.

Taking care of your feet should be an ongoing process. Every day you should wash your feet and make sure they are as clean as possible. After you wash them, be sure to dry them thoroughly, especially if you are putting on shoes or socks. Your socks and shoes should also be clean. Never wear socks more than once without washing, and allow your shoes time to air out before putting them back on your feet. Shoes take about a full day to dry, so swap out your shoes every other day. To avoid injury to your nails trim them straight across and then file any rough edges.

If you do have a fungal infection don’t assume it’s too late to do anything about it. Call Dr. Marco Vargas and Dr. Joyce Lee at (888) 784-5335 to schedule an appointment. Foot and Ankle Associates in Houston is dedicated to the health of your feet, and we will do all we can to wipe out your nail fungus so you can be comfortable and confident once again.
