Don’t go barefoot in public areas- public spaces such as public pools, locker rooms, showers and similar places are highly loaded with fungi desperately waiting for your toes. Always wear sandals or shoes in such environments.

Disinfect regularly- you can use a bleach-based cleanser to scrub and clean your shower. Also, make sure to spray your shoes with antibacterial spray mostly if you have worn them without socks. Develop a habit of washing all your socks with hot water and bleach so as to kill any fungi present.

Treat your shoes- you can sprinkle your shoes with an antifungal powder so as to keep any fungi at bay. Do this also on the inside of your socks as well as shoes before you wear them to prevent fungi spore from growing.

Buy socks that absorb sweat-wear socks which are efficient at absorbing away the moisture from your foot. Such fabrics include wool, nylon and polypropylene. If you have the sweaty type of feet, make sure to change your socks often.

Alternate your shoes- to begin with, if it is possible to discard your old shoes to prevent reinfections as the shoes may be harboring fungi. If not, make sure to treat them with antifungal powders.  It is recommended that you alternate shoes so as to reduce the risk of toenail fungal infection. Avoid wearing one pair of shoes two days in a row. Place the shoes which you have previously worn in the open so as to dry thoroughly.

These habits will help you along with the ones you love to sidestep the toenail fungal infection and keep your feet healthy. Should you still have issues, please come get toenail fungus treatment in Manhasset.
