ATHLETE’S FOOT

Athlete’s Foot is the most common fungal skin infection. Fungi thrive in closed, warm, and moist environments such as a damp sneaker after a workout. Athlete’s foot can be spread through direct contact with the infection and by skin particles left on towels, shoes, or floors.

Dust your socks and shoes with antifungal powder.

Wear cotton socks only.

Wear shower shoes, flip-flops, or sandals when walking around pools, gyms, shower areas, and hotel rooms.
