fungal infectioon

The fungus that causes this itchy rash thrives in the warm, dark, wet environment between your toes. The key is keeping your feet dry.

Select well-ventilated shoes

Wear sandals, leather shoes or athletic styles with ventilation

holes that allow feet to breathe. Avoid shoes made of synthetic materials, such as vinyl or rubber.

Alternate shoes

Don’t wear the same pair every day. Change wet shoes imme- diately. Don’t store out-of-season styles in plastic.

Protect your feet in high-risk areas

Wear waterproof sandals or shoes around public pools, showers and locker rooms.

Wear acrylic socks

When wearing closed-toe shoes, wear socks made of synthetic

fibers such as acrylic or polypropylene that wick away mois- ture. Cotton socks tend to absorb moisture from your feet.

Change damp socks

If your feet sweat, change your socks twice a day.

Use antifungal medications

For recurring infections, use an antifungal medication as per your doctor's prescription
