You can manage your fungal infections on a daily basis by following the indications of your doctor regarding medicinal treatment. Additionally, you can speed your healing process and prevent further infection by practicing some simple habits. You should wash your feet daily and always wear loose, clean, cotton clothing. Also, try not to share anything that comes into contact with your body as fungal infections are often spread from person to person. You should always wear foot protection in public showers, rest rooms, or locker rooms. Your feet and body should always be very clean and dry, using a powder if necessary for excessive perspiration.
