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.
