How can I avoid toenail fungus?

Preventing a fungal infection is easier than treating one that has already started. Fungus is most happy in environments that are both warm and damp. This includes the insides of your shoes and places like gym showers or public pools. To avoid toenail fungus, follow these hints to keep your feet clean and dry as much as possible. Allow your shoes to air out for at least a full 24 hours, if not longer, before wearing again. Never wear the same socks two days in a row. In fact, you should change your socks throughout the day if necessary, to keep feet drier. If you are using a public facility always wear shoes; even an old pair of rubber flip flops can keep your feet safer in the shower. If you go to a salon, make sure you trust them to clean their instruments and foot baths and disinfect them thoroughly.
Taking these precautions should help you avoid a fungal infection, but if they haven’t, call Dr. Marco Vargas and Dr. Joyce Lee at (888) 784-5335 to schedule an appointment at Foot & Ankle Associates in Houston. We can answer your questions and provide treatments to heal your toenails.
