Athlete's Foot

The causes of Athlete’s foot

Fungus is everywhere – even in typical hangouts like gyms or pool areas where individual hygiene standards may not be optimal at times. Athletes foot is one type of fungal infection that flourishes in such conditions – especially when humidity levels are high and temperatures are warm.

To spare yourself from this condition practice good hygiene habits such as regularly washing your feet thoroughly with soap water then drying them off before putting on breathable footwear. Keep away from shared surfaces like floors if you have any cuts or scratches on your feet.
