Fungal infections are almost always treated with some sort of medication whether it is a cream, pill, or IV. However, you can help your healing process along and prevent fungal infection recurrence by practicing some simple measures. You should wash your feet daily and always wear loose, clean, cotton clothing. 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.
