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.

Ways to avoid toenail fungus might be the least of your worries right now. But the fact that fungi are found nearly everywhere makes the issue one that you need to take seriously. If you have warm, sweaty feet then you create the perfect condition to have a breeding ground for the toenail fungal infection. Even so, you can start to engage in healthy habits which will help you significantly when it comes to preventing nail fungus or any reinfections in future. Follow the tips below to help you avoid the occurrence of a toenail fungal infection.

Clip your toenails correctly- you should trim your nails straight across and then file down the thickened areas. Along with cutting the nails, make sure to wash your hands and feet with soap and water then rinse before drying it thoroughly. Another interesting option would be to try laser toenail fungus treatment.

Do away with nail polish and artificial nails- you might be tempted to use a coat of nail polish with a pretty colour so as to hide any nail fungal infection but it is not advisable. The nail polish can trap unwanted moisture which will, in turn, worsen the infection.

Opt for breathable footwear- shoes that are made of breathable materials will allow air to circulate your feet. When your feet are dry most of the times, then they will be less susceptible to toenail fungus. These breathable materials are the likes of leather or canvas.

Do you have fungal nails? Are you constantly self conscious about your toenail appearance and hide your feet? Don’t worry, you are not alone - over 36 million individuals in the US are affected  by nail fungus.    
  
There are different types of nail fungus and is typically caused by fungi (yeasts/molds). Fungi love warm and moist places and can thrive in the layer of dead skin surrounding your nails. Depending on the circumstances whether due to health issues (immunocompromised), going  barefoot in communal areas (gym showers, pool areas, gym mats)- your nails may become  infected. Once infected, your nails may become discolored, thickened, and even painful. Stop  nail fungus and try laser toenail treatment!
