Showering in public places, especially, male and female sharing of space may be dangerous for your feet. Besides the recommended washing of moist places that may carry fungal growth, your feet are susceptible to germs and need special care and attention too. It is highly admirable to wear thongs and flip-flops in a public restroom and treat your feet and shoes to fungicide treatment once in awhile. It is even harder to keep nails trimmed and treated, and the majority of foot fungus can be carried by nail cutters, clippers, and use of nail polish.
Treatments for nail fungus vary considerably. Ever thought of soaking your feet in vinegar? Probably not, but it has been proven to work as a homeopathic remedy. The usual creams can be expensive but importantly, they speed up the killing of fungal spores in a more intensive application. Athlete’s foot requires a different remedy from nail fungus, and left untreated could mean an infection leading to blood poisoning.
The proper prevention for mold spores, as they exist almost anywhere, is to keep tabs of moisture in your living area, keep your tubs and showers cleaned weekly, and keep leaky plumbing from draining and ruining items of interest. Preventing mold, and thus athlete’s foot means early detection of symptoms, like allergic reactions such as runny nose, and irritated eyes, as well as consideration to loss of concentration and memory loss.
